Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics, Tenth Edition, Four Volume Set edited by S. Terry Canale (Mosby) Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics, Tenth Edition, CD-ROM WIN/MAC Version edited by S. Terry Canale (Mosby) The definitive reference in orthopedic surgery is back. Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics is totally revised and updated to encompass over 1,800 procedures, including 90 that are new to this edition. S. Terry Canale, Professor and Chairman, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Tennessee-Campbell Clinic, and 33 other leading authorities from the Campbell Clinic present encyclopedic, in-depth coverage of the field, superbly organized for efficient access. This landmark 4-volume set now includes a CD-ROM containing video clips that demonstrate key surgical procedures.

Almost 75 years ago Willis Cahoon Campbell wrote his Textbook on Orthopaedic Surgery. The first edition of Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics was published in 1939, and the authors are now celebrating the tenth edition of the text.

The growth of the field of orthopaedic surgery has been paralleled by the growth of Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics. The enormous advances in our understanding of orthopaedic conditions and in the devices and techniques used to treat them were made possible by pioneer physicians in orthopaedics, many of whom also were contributors to earlier editions of the text. Significant advances and contributions have been made in the field of orthopaedic surgery in the areas of arthroscopy and arthroplasty and in the subspe­cialties of sports medicine, hand, foot, pediatrics, joint reconstruction, and rehabilitation. The inventions and innova­tions in each of these areas have lessened the burden of disease on patients and will do so even more in the future. As a result of the ever-expanding knowledge and experience of orthopaedic surgeons, in past editions and especially in this edition, Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics has described the most useful of these operative advances. As editor, Canale says the authors have not aspired to be the first to “pick up the sword,” nor have they wanted to be the last to “drop the shield.” They have attempted to include the mainstream, proven techniques, along with some of the promising cutting-edge techniques and even some of the older techniques that may be applicable to areas of the world where the latest technology is unavailable.

In keeping up with the times and changing technology, this edition includes a CD-ROM with videos that demonstrate commonly performed orthopaedic operations.

Finally, key techniques in Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics are available in seven handheld (PDA) modules: adult reconstruction, congenital anomalies and pediatrics, spine, sports medicine and arthroscopy, hand, ankle and foot, and trauma.

New features of the 10th edition include:

  • Techniques are numbered within each chapter.
  • All techniques in each volume are listed on the front and back endsheets for quick reference.
  • Key references in the exhaustive reference lists are highlighted in boldface type.
  • CD-ROM icons within the text indicate that the technique being described also is demonstrated on the video CD.

The CD-ROM offer the entire contents of Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics in a versatile, digital format, plus

  • The ability to rapidly search across the entire work.
  • Links to MEDLINE abstracts for many of the references.
  • A separate CD-ROM containing video clips of 10 key procedures.

Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics is the comprehensive reference for orthopaedic surgery and part of the minimal core for the general medical library.
