Reviews

From the reviews:

"Epiphyseal Growth-Plate Fractures is an enormous undertaking by Hamlet Peterson … . The text is well organized, well referenced, and easy to follow … . The diagrams and illustrations are superb. … The book succeeds on many levels and will likely immediately become a standard text for all pediatric orthopedic surgeons as well as a valuable resource for any orthopedic surgeon … . also would be a helpful text for pediatric radiologists and should be a part of the library of every orthopedic residency program." (Robert J. Bielski, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 298 (10), 2007)

"This single-authored book covers injuries to the growth plate in children. … is written mainly for pediatric orthopedic surgeons, residents, and fellows. General orthopedists and traumatologists will find it useful. The author … is internationally known for his invaluable work in this field. This is by far the best work available on physeal fractures. … I very highly recommend this work to all orthopedic surgeons caring for children and orthopedic trainees. This is a ‘must have’ for all medical science libraries as a reference." (Edward Abraham, www.doody.com, August, 2007)

"It is my pleasure to bring your attention to Dr. Hamlet Peterson’s Epiphyseal Growth Plate Fractures. … Peterson’s 30 years of study and catalogue and careful reflection have produced a monumental text. … I recommend this text without reservation to anyone who needs an academic pick-me-up. Radiologists and orthopedic surgeons who care for children will find it an essential source and a wonderful tour of this fundamental topic of pediatric care. Every pediatric center should have a copy for reference and inspiration. Overall grade Excellent." (Brent H. Adler, Pediatric Radiology, Vol. 38, 2008)

"Peterson has written multiple journal articles and lectured extensively on the subject. This textbook is a summary of his experience, together with a review of all pertinent literature on the subject. The book has 900 pages, and nearly 2,000 figures. … This is a very well written book. … provides useful information for the doctor in the emergency room as well as for academic studies. … This book should be available to everyone managing fractures in children." (Gunnar Hägglund, Acta Orthpaedica, Vol. 79 (2), 2008)
