Extract

This well-written and clearly illustrated textbook describes the philosophy and the treatment techniques of one of the leaders of shoulder surgery in North America. The approach is somewhat novel and uses different terminology and a rationale that has been developed and championed by the senior author, Frederick A. Matsen III, who has had extensive publication of many of these ideas in peer-reviewed journals. It must be understood that this book emphasizes Dr. Matsen's approach and that alternative philosophies and methods of treatment are available elsewhere. Having taken that fact into consideration, the reader will find that the text provides unique insights and useful clinical information that will be beneficial to the clinician in the management of both simple and complex orthopaedic problems concerning the shoulder joint.
