Second Edition of eBook to Benefit All Career Levels

Volunteer Note

Warren C. Hammert, MD and Ryan P. Calfee, MD, MSc
The second edition of the ASSH Manual of Hand Surgery will be available at Specialty Day at the AAOS meeting.  This is an electronic version of the popular “green book,” which is widely used to review the care of patients with upper extremity conditions.  The electronic form has allowed us to include over 50 videos of examination maneuvers and surgical techniques, many of which are the recordings of the presentations at Specialty Day in 2013.  We have also added several new chapters, including pediatric conditions, elbow spasticity and chapters on examination of the upper extremity. 

This would not have been possible without the contributions of the authors from the first edition, those who updated, revised and provided new information for the second edition, or our outstanding editorial support by the ASSH staff.  We hope you will find this book useful, whether you are in training or an experienced practitioner.
