Abstract

Mayo Clinic Principles of Shoulder Surgery was written for individuals just starting to learn about shoulder surgery or health care providers who need a clear understanding of the basics when they occasionally evaluate a patient with a shoulder condition (i.e., family practitioners, physician assistants, physical therapists, nurses, operating room personnel), with a clear goal: convey the fundamentals of shoulder surgery concisely and thus serve as a strong foundation upon which knowledge and experience can be built. If you are a shoulder expert, this book is too simple for you. You already know the basic principles of shoulder surgery. Currently, most shoulder books are authored by multiple contributors under the guidance of one or more editors; however, the author believed that his vision would be achieved best by a single author reflecting the shoulder surgery practice at Mayo Clinic.
