Five years after the publication of the fifth edition of Lovell and Winter's Pediatric Orthopaedics, Morrissy and Weinstein have again combined to produce the sixth edition of this essential textbook of pediatric orthopaedics and its companion atlas, the fourth edition of the Atlas of Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery.Fifty individuals are credited with contributing to the newest version of the two-volume Lovell and Winter's Pediatric Orthopaedics, including seventeen new authors or coauthors. Nine of the thirty-four chapters have new authors, and almost all of those chapters have been improved and updated in keeping with the fresh approach that new authors should be expected to bring to their respective topics. An excellent, entirely new chapter, "Evaluation of the Medical Literature," has been added, while "Normal Gait" has been dropped. The subject of congenital scoliosis has been separated from that of idiopathic scoliosis and now has its own chapter. Both chapters are particularly well done. The five "spine" chapters ("Idiopathic Scoliosis," "Congenital Scoliosis," "Kyphosis," "Spondylolysis and Spondylolisthesis," and "The Cervical Spine") are comprehensive and well written. Unfortunately, however, two of those chapters ("Congenital Scoliosis" and "Spondylolysis and Spondylolisthesis") suffer from the inclusion of a number of poorly-reproduced radiographic illustrations.
