For each case, you’ll review patient history, planning, approach, reduction, fixation, and rehabilitation, along with hundreds of full-color illustrations, intraoperative pictures, and x-rays. An accompanying DVD-ROM demonstrates step-by-step intraoperative procedures for easy visual comprehension.
