Developed from video recordings made with state-of-the-art cameras in master surgeons' operating rooms, this innovative full-color atlas/DVD package provides a true-to-life, step-by-step tutorial on 37 common orthopaedic surgical procedures.
An atlas featuring vivid intraoperative photographs, plus surgical drawings and ""how-to"" instructions rich in clinical pearls, is supplemented by an interactive multimedia DVD featuring one hour of real-time narrated video.
The atlas depicts every step of each procedure, with succinct, bulleted text that covers anatomy, classification, equipment/instruments, patient positioning, incision, pearls and pitfalls, surgical approach, and technique. The DVD video demonstrates maneuvers that are difficult to show with still photos.
