For more than 20 years the author of this book has been telling orthopedists, and all physicians and surgeons who would listen, that fractures in children are different. No one has shown a greater interest in this subject or has had a better opportunity of studying and evaluating methods of treatment of fractures and other injuries to the spine and extremities of children. This beautifully written and generously illustrated book can be used as a reference book or a textbook. Although the author is conservative, he uses all the newer methods that are appropriate and promise more perfect results without increasing the risks to the patient. The chapters include carefully described and well-illustrated techniques of dealing with the more common fractures of the spine and the extremities. The author also discusses the complicated or infected fractures. The chapters describing injuries of the foot and hand should be of special value.
