The Wrist: Diagnosis and Operative Treatment

JAMA. 2011;305(15):1598-1601. doi:10.1001/jama.2011.487

The Wrist is the second edition of a textbook edited by William Cooney from the Mayo Clinic and a superior treatise on the diagnosis and operative treatment of the wrist. The book maintains the fine standard set forth in the first edition. The book is truly comprehensive and provides in-depth coverage of all aspects of care of the wrist. The book is lengthy and has some redundancies, but the quality and detail is for the most part remarkable. Many of the authors were or are affiliated with the Mayo Clinic and are leaders in the field of hand surgery. The book is divided into 12 sections with a total of 60 chapters.
