Explores the ways in which external fixators are used to reduce tissue damage, reduce strain on nerves and vasculature, and improve healing in the surgical treatment of foot and ankle deformities and injuries.

Authoritative perspectives from leading orthopedic and podiatric surgeons help to build an understanding and strengthen your technique. The multidisciplinary team approach in treating complex trauma, reconstructive, or diabetic patients is emphasized throughout this textbook.

How-to, step-by-step instruction addresses a range of fixation procedures, helping readers understand the relevant anatomy and avoid potential complications. Abundant illustrations highlight the text, providing a surgeon’s eye view of a range of commonly performed procedures.
