From the reviews:

“This book is designed to address some of the more challenging conditions in foot and ankle surgery on a practical level, using some of the more advanced and recent treatment techniques. … The book is written for active practitioners, and will be most suitable for those beyond their residency specialty training years … . Both orthopedists and podiatrists will find the descriptions enlightening and of interest. … this book is well laid out and makes good use of color plates, black-and-white photographs, and line drawings.” (Martin C. Yorath, Doody’s Review Service, October, 2012)
