Poor Piet deBoer! He and Stanley Hoppenfeld collaborated again for the third edition of Surgical Exposures in Orthopaedics: The Anatomic Approach. Since the first edition was published in 1984, this textbook has become the reference for orthopaedic exposures, but it is universally referred to only as "Hoppenfeld," as in, "Did you review the exposure in Hoppenfeld?" Piet deBoer and illustrator Hugh A. Thomas are all but forgotten.The authors and illustrator have done it again. This third edition is slightly larger, at 684 pages of text, than the second edition, which had 583 pages of text. The font and spacing have been changed to give the pages a more open appearance than that in the previous editions, thus making for easier reading. While the previous editions had some color in the illustrations, the illustrations in this edition are presented in full color and are also better spaced, which dramatically improves the appearance of the images.
