Written in an accessible and instructive format, this richly illustrated text covers the analysis, planning, and treatment of lower limb deformities, with a view to teaching deformity correction. A foundation of understanding normal alignment is presented, using new nomenclature that is easy to remember and can even be derived without memorization. The work offers detailed information on deformities and malalignment, radiographic assessment, mechanical and anatomic axis planning, osteotomies, and hardware considerations. The part dealing with planning is further facilitated via an exercise workbook and an animated CD-ROM which is available separately. The methods taught are simple and intuitive.
