December 2004 AAOS Report

AAOS, AOFAS jointly publish new text on the foot and ankle

The American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society and the AAOS have pooled resources to produce Advanced Reconstruction: Foot and Ankle, edited by James A. Nunley, MD; Glenn B. Pfeffer, MD; Roy W. Sanders, MD; and Elly Trepman, MD. This book, intended for surgeons who care for patients with foot and ankle problems, received a highly coveted three-star rating in Doody's Electronic Journal, a leading medical book review service.

Book reviewer Edward Abraham, MD, of the University of Illinois-Chicago, noted that Foot and Ankle was edited by "four orthopaedists fully qualified to write on this subject" and could be helpful to a range of audiences: general orthopaedists, foot and ankle subspecialists, orthopaedic residents and podiatrists.

"I strongly recommend this book to all surgeons caring for patients with foot and ankle problems," Dr. Abraham concluded. A video supplement on CD-ROM accompanies the text. The supplement contains demonstrations from the January 2004 Advanced Foot and Ankle Techniques course.

The cost to AAOS members for the book and video supplement is $160. To order, call customer service at (800) 626-6726. Or order online at www.aaos.org: Go to the Educational Resources Catalog tab and click on Books.
