This successful book, first published in 1980 and now in its fourth edition, provides an authoritative guide for busy practitioners trying to keep pace with current trends in small animal orthopaedic surgery. In this new edition Hamish Denny and Steven Butterworth have retained the same practical approach but have completely rewritten and updated the book to provide a comprehensive review of orthopaedic and spinal conditions in the dog and cat. The illustrations have also undergone a major overhaul and the many line drawings are now combined with photographs and radiographs to clarify diagnostic and surgical techniques. Although the size of the book has increased, its regional approach to problems still enables the reader to use it as a rapid reference guide.It will prove an invaluable source of information for veterinary practitioners diagnosing and treating orthopaedic and spinal problems, while postgraduate students taking further qualifications in orthopaedics will find a sound basis for their studies and further reading provided here.
though there are a fair number of orthopaedic textbooks in the marketplace, I would recommend this one for its practical approach, readability and thoroughness. Being a hardback, its cost is slightly higher than its predecessor's, but it has undergone considerable expansion and, at GBP55, still represents very good value for money. Even the most experienced surgeon will be able to glean useful practical advice from this book." The Veterinary Record
