This is a fair review of the subject of orthopedic surgery. The author has not gone into all the methods of treatment, but has chosen those which he has found best. In the more important conditions he has indicated the bibliography of the most recent works, so that one may study more intensively certain operative procedures. Excluding congenital clubfoot; and congenital dislocation of the hip, there is too much space allotted to the congenital deformities. The embryology as it concerns orthopedic surgery is not given sufficient space. The book is intended to be a practical outline of orthopedic surgery, and is of only moderate value to the student, practitioner or specialist. It is profusely illustrated, but the illustrations are only fair. Too many illustrations are borrowed, and the selection is not of the best. Excepting the work of Albee, American orthopedic surgery is given little attention.
