Written by outstanding hand surgeons, this volume of the Lippincott Orthopaedic Surgery Essentials Series presents all the information residents need during hand and wrist surgery rotations or services. It can easily be read cover to cover during a rotation or used for quick reference before a patient workup or operation. The user-friendly, visually stimulating format features ample illustrations, bulleted lists, boxes, and tables. Coverage begins with hand and wrist anatomy and movement and proceeds to specific deformities, diseases, and injuries. Chapters are organized according to the venue in which disorders are usually first encountered—outpatient clinic or emergency department.
