Specific operative and nonoperative techniques and their results are stressed. The book is extensively illustrated with drawings, most of which were made for this book, microscopy photos, and serial radiographs. The reader learns of pediatric orthopedic deformity in relation to normal and abnormal developmental biology, the worsening of untreated disease with growth, and the diagnostic and treatment interventions required based on the stage of progression. * Treatments are correlated with the pathologic state of the disorder * Discusses disorders from earliest onset to the final state showing how the altered biology leads to progressively greater clinical deformity * Initial chapter focuses on development bone biology stressing a broad based approach involving histologic, gene and molecular, and biomechanical features * Subsequent chapters discuss the pathogenesis of the various deformities, natural history, radiographic and imaging findings and orthopaedic and surgical management

Developmental biology of normal bone and cartilage including histogenesis, molecular/gene and biomechanical aspects is updated and expanded. The book outlines the biology of: bone repair with differing mechanical environments; cartilage repair at articular and physeal sites; and distraction osteogenesis. The generously illustrated text provides an in-depth presentation of the interplay between normal developmental biology, abnormal pathologic states and the influence of operative and non-operative orthopedic interventions on childhood orthopedic deformity. Thirty-four principles underlying the development, progression and management of skeletal deformity in the growing child are defined. Orthopedic management including surgical treatment is discussed for: skeletal dysplasias; epiphyseal growth plate fracture-separations; lower extremity length discrepancies; and deformities of joints and epiphyses due to metabolic, inflammatory, infectious, hematologic, and neoplastic disorders. Treatments are related to extent of deformity, remodeling post-surgery and possible recurrence. This 2nd edition of Pediatric Orthopedic Deformities has been expanded to cover more regions and disorders and is being presented in 3 volumes.

This second edition of the classic work uses definitions, topical quotations by famous people and amusing cartoons in its exhaustive coverage of pediatric orthopedics. It communicates the latest findings in pediatric orthopedics in a didactic, comprehensive and detailed manner, answering everyday questions in the field of orthopedics and pediatrics and highlighting all aspects of diagnosis. It also gives precise instructions for therapy, and answers questions such as: should we simply let nature take care of the way children grow and develop? Or do we need splints, corsets, or even operations, for straightening what is crooked? This is how to make children’s orthopedics fun – in practice and theory.
