Reviews

From the reviews: "This multiauthored book on fractures in older persons is part of the series Aging Medicine. ... audience is practitioners, but advanced trainees in these areas also will find this book of use. The authors are all experts in these areas. ... This is a very good book with a well-organized flow. ... Persons looking for useful areas of research in fractures and the management of persons sustaining fractures would benefit from reading this book. The contribution of a wide range of specialists enhances its usefulness." (David O. Staats, Doody's Review Service, June, 2011) "This timely book aims to provide up-to-date information on the prevention of fractures in the elderly as well as current best management practices for dealing with fractures once they have occurred. ... The discussions of current surgical techniques are ... concise and clearly presented for both the surgical and the nonsurgical reader. ... a readable, concise guide for clinicians whose task is to prevent or to treat fractures in elderly persons. ... should be a useful reference for geriatricians, orthopedists, anesthesiologists, and primary care physicians." (David A. Ontjes, Journal of the American Medical Association, July, 2011)
