Long Description
To "train to be straight" is the original meaning of the term "orthopaedics," which was coined over 250 years ago by Nicolas Andry. But how can the "trainers" straighten the crooked bones of children? Should we simply let nature take its course in the growth and development of children? Or do we need splints, braces, corsets, or even surgical operations, for straightening what is crooked? Do skewfeet stop Cinderella from turning into a princess? Are children warped if they are knock-kneed or bow-legged? Written in an entertaining style, this book contains scientific information, though-provoking topical quotations and amusing cartoons. The translation of the newest edition of the well-known classic "Kinderorthop'die in der Praxis" communicates the latest findings in pediatric orthopaedics in an informative and comprehensive manner. This book provides answers to everyday questions in the field of orthopaedics and pediatrics, highlights all aspects of diagnosis and includes detailed information on therapy. The collected knowledge of experts from the Basel University Children?'s Hospital (Fritz Hefti and his co-workers Reinald Brunner, Carol-Claudius Hasler and Gernot Jundt). With amusing cartoons by Franz Freuler and forewords by James R. Kasser and G. Dean MacEwen.
