Fully revised and updated, the second edition of Hand Surgery has been broadened to reflect the diverse nature of the speciality, providing more detail on hand therapy and alternatives to hand surgery, whilst maintaining surgical techniques in line with current guidelines.
The compact format of Hand Surgery, part of the Oxford Specialist Handbooks in Surgery series, is designed to work both as a revision guide, with clearly organised chapters and headings throughout, and as an aide-memoire for fine detail such as pathology classifications. Featuring an authoritative list of contributors from hand surgeons and therapists, this new edition reflects the close working relationships between the two disciplines and draws from the knowledge of experts
in the field.
