A master surgeon and scholar have created the first true reference for the increasingly complex field of orthopaedic surgery arranged in easy-to-find, item-by-item alphabetical sequence. Every term--anatomic, surgical, instrumental, eponymic--used in contemporary orthopaedics is defined from the surgeon's point of view. Over 1,000 explanatory line drawings clarify the terms. An excellent preparatory tool for residents who must define terms as part of the AAOS fellowship exam.
