An absolutely amazing investment -- reads very easily as well!
Brian W. Capeloto, MD
With this one and "Extensile exposure" by Arnold K. Henry you have almost enough books about orthopaedic aproaches.

A must for Ortho residents, students interested in ortho, or any practicing orthopod!

This is such a fantastic book as an introduction to the concepts of achieving good exposure in orthopedic surgery!

Of particular note to medical students about to start buying books for this fall's away rotations: I didn't, and I wouldn't, really fool much with Netter's Concise Orthopaedic Anatomy, 2e (Netter Basic Science), since the level of detail just doesn't compare. If you're gonna read about an exposure, you may as well do it right and read about it in Hoppenfeld. Throw down the coin, since--after all--you'd expect that you'll be needing this book for a few years to come anyway! Look at it as an investment in the Match! Read on for reasons why...

I write this as an about-to-start intern who used this book extensively on my third- and fourth-year orthopedics rotations during medical school, so it is mostly medical students who will find this review useful. This book almost definitely was over my head in large parts during my third year but started to click early in my fourth-year rotations after I had spent a good bit of time in the OR. I see residents referring to this book often, even the seniors sometimes, for a great broad overview of the "large menu of options" to "get to the bone and stay there", especially for fractures. Discussion of the rationale for particular approaches is somewhat limited (and is probably a discussion more suited to books written about particular injuries that would spark such a debate), but the "how-to" and the lending of understanding of the anatomy while in a particular approach is spectacular.

This is a terrific resource for me as a med student. As I have been told by many others ahead of me, this is an essential resource. I have the text book, too, but the Kindle version is a blessing, as I can always have it with me. I always use this to review approaches the night before, the morning of, and in between, cases. It has been worth it's weight in gold to me.

With this one and "Extensile exposure" by Arnold K. Henry you have almost enough books about orthopaedic aproaches. Read it every day before going to the theatre.

This text amply reviews all relevant anatomy for all common surgical sites and each possible approach, both open and arthroscopic. This is an excellent review of anatomy and also prep to use the night before cases. I would recommend it to anyone going in to Ortho.

This is my THIRD Hoppenfeld in my 22 years of practicing Orthopaedics. It is simply the best and most practical guide for surgical approaches. I used to keep the hard cover edition in the trunk of my car, but am happy to now have an electronic version. The illustrations are superb and clear. It is one of the books that every Ortho resident must own.
