The management of trauma and other orthopedic diseases has progressed by leaps and bounds during the last 40 years. Similarly, the cost of treatment has increased proportionately with the advent of joint replacement and of course costly trauma implants. India is a land of contrasts where there are 5-star hospital treatment facilities as well as quacks treating everything in villages and smaller towns. We do not have enough resources to treat all patients to the Western standards even if it may be desirable. In India, we need more of the options which will restore the function, are less costly and more dependent on biology rather than implants. This book does exactly the same.

Prof. Tuli, in his inimitable way, has described various biological options for these conditions. Book is written in lucid and clear language. He has given several useful tips and practical solutions for complex problems. The basics and fundamental principles have been brought out well. Many useful but forgotten operations such as Huntington's procedure, Papineau's bone grafting, and pantalar arthrodesis, which give functional results, have been well described.

The book is divided into two sections. Each chapter is divided into headings and subheadings. Each chapter is giving key points of the condition. The chapter on bone and joints infection has been written with an aim to emphasize the importance of early diagnosis and treatment. Some common congenital dysplasias and deformities and common tumors have also been discussed. Chapter 10 discusses poliomyelitis whose new cases are not seen, but the old cases may still be there. Section 2 incorporates regional orthopedic conditions where several common painful but common conditions are discussed. Glenoplasty for recurrent dislocation of shoulder, which was popularized by the author also gets a place in this book.

This book is recommended for young and practicing orthopedic surgeons. It will also be a useful revision book for postgraduate students.
