SPECIAL COMMUNICATIONS: Book Reviews
This DVD in the Standing Room Only series covers the gamut of the most common knee, ankle, elbow, and shoulder injuries in skeletally immature athletes. The series, from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, brings the user into the lecture hall or annual meeting with some of the leading experts on various aspects of a particular field—in this case, orthopedic pediatric sports medicine.
It is so difficult to make it to all the great talks you might be interested in at the annual meeting, and it is almost impossible to go to all the meetings of the subspecialty organizations. This is where this series comes in. It gives us the opportunity to attend (in our offices or homes) the best of meetings taught by leading experts. This offering takes the user through the most up-to-date concepts in treating skeletally immature athletes.
Anyone who would consider attending the AAOS annual meeting or a pediatric subspecialty conference will find this DVD valuable. This includes residents, fellows, general orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine specialists, and pediatric orthopedic subspecialists. Users will appreciate the broad range of experts that Mininder Kocher has brought together.
The DVD is divided into anatomic sections dedicated to the knee, ankle, elbow, and shoulder, and it includes lectures, PowerPoint presentations, and videos that bring users up to date.
This is the 11th offering in the AAOS Standing Room Only series. I have enjoyed every one and I am confident that all orthopedic surgeons who have young athletic patients will find this one valuable. In fact, the entire series should be available to all orthopedic residents in their departmental and university libraries.
