This uniquely practical, readable, and well-illustrated book focuses on orthopaedic conditions commonly seen in children and offers the guidance most urgently needed in everyday practice. It presents a systematic approach to identifying and treating these problems during their early, most easily remediable stages. In keeping with the authors' belief that "the decision is more important than the incision," their emphasis is not on surgical technique but on the decision-making processes involved in determining the ideal course of therapy. Straightforward recommendations are offered on the optimal method and timing of surgery, if required, and on nonsurgical interventions such as casting, braces, and orthotics.The book contains nearly 1,500 illustrations, including many original drawings by Dr. Rang. To further enhance the text, marginalia present facts, quotations, and historical and biographical sketches that reveal the evolution and key concepts of children's orthopaedics.
