Innovative, simplified, and quick to review book that currently is not duplicated by other textbooks currently in print on the topic of foot and ankle surgery.
Diseases of the foot and ankle are common and encountered not only by orthopedic surgeons; they encompass the entirety of a podiatric practice. The field of foot and ankle surgery is young compared to other fields and the need for good educational material is in high demand. There is a distinct lack of practical textbooks in the English literature, and very little literature on the subject at all in China and India. Having lectured in both of those nations, the need for literature is very high and the field is just beginning to take off in those nations with a very large potential number of cases that may be performed. There are excellent textbooks that provide a detailed history of disease process and a discussion of complex foot and ankle surgery. However, there is very little literature that can guide a surgeon from start to finish in the identification of a disease process through the surgery and postoperative care. This practical knowledge is critical in the care of patients. Our goal to provide the practicing orthopedic surgeon or podiatrist a practical approach to the diagnosis and treatment of the most common foot and ankle pathologies.
