"Fractures of the Proximal Femur: Improving Outcomes", by Dr. James P. Waddell, helps you maximize clinical outcomes when addressing the challenges, complications, and treatment of patients with hip fractures. Match pre-operative assessment, surgical techniques, post-operative management, and more to the specific lifestyle factors of each patient in order to achieve optimal results. Apply state-of-the-art techniques and protocols with the visual help of operative videos as well as more than 500 surgical line drawings and photographs in print and online.


"This book is valuable because it not only expertly instructs how to improve outcomes for adult hip fracture patients, it also teaches us a philosophy of going beyond our operation to treat the whole patient and even try to prevent future fractures by treating osteoporosis and helping patients avoid falls. For this complete approach, there is no match in the field." - Samuel J. Chmell, MD, Doody's Review Service
