"The book can serve as a guide and update for surgeons who commonly perform these procedures, and I guarantee they will gather numerous pearls that change their practice. The pictures, line drawings, and videos are excellent and make it possible for readers to understand exactly what they should be accomplishing at the time of surgery. This is an excellent contribution to the field and I would agree with James Andrews, who states in the foreword, "Management of the Unstable Shoulder: Arthroscopic and Open Repair is an exceptional and unrivaled contribution to the continuing evolution of unstable shoulder management and treatment. I believe it will be an indispensible and informative addition to orthopaedic libraries everywhere." Thanks, Dr. Andrews, I couldn't have said it better myself."
