William P. Cooney III

The Wrist: Diagnosis and Operative Treatment, Second edition is the most comprehensive text and reference on diagnosis and treatment of wrist disorders.

Written by world-renowned experts from the Mayo Clinic and other leading institutions, this definitive text covers examination techniques for the wrist and diagnosis and treatment of fractures, dislocations, carpal instability, distal radius injuries, rheumatoid problems, soft tissue disorders, and developmental problems.

The treatment chapters provide extensive coverage of current surgical techniques. More than 3,000 illustrations complement the text.

This Second Edition has many new contributors, including several international wrist investigators.

New chapters cover:

  • wrist outcome assessment scores
  • treatment subtypes for carpal instability (tenodesis/capsulodesis and intercarpal fusions)
  • denervation procedures
  • acute and chronic instability of the distal radioulnar joint
  • evaluation and treatment of axial forearm instability (Essex-Lopresti lesion)

Chapters from the first edition have been updated, and several have new authorship.

A companion website includes the fully searchable text and an image bank.
