Hardikar’s Orthopaedic Operations Text and Atlas

Sharad M Hardikar, Shrinivas S Shintre, Vijay M Panchanadikar

This will be a unique book for junior and senior Orthopaedic Surgeons. It should be part of library of every practicing Orthopaedic Surgeon. This book covers all common orthopaedic operations in all subspecialties of orthopaedics. Each procedure has serial photographs of the operations starting with trolley, position of patient, till closure of the wound. There will be step-by-step description of the procedure corresponding to the photographs. Each operation will have brief relevant text and possible complications. Each chapter will have important suggested further readings at the end. 


The purpose of the book is that any Orthopaedic Surgeon should be able to do the operation by looking at the serial photographs. Some of the procedures in the book will require assistance of an expert.


It is proposed that the entire book and some extra operations will be available online also.
