Atlas of Orthopaedic Surgical Exposures explains how to reach the various bones and joints by the easiest and safest routes. Written in a lucid storybook like style, and accompanied with brilliant water-colour diagrams prepared by the author, the book clearly describes most common and a few uncommon approaches to all bones and joints. The author has also added the historical aspects of evolution of these approaches making it extremely fascinating. The book comes with audio CD and multimedia DVD.
Dr Arvind Diwakar Jain, in his Foreword to this book, mentions: “Now I realise that the knife too has to relearn its set of rules. Written lucidly in short simple sentences, and illustrated with pictures emulating F. Netter, with a few words and many pictures, this Atlas was a pleasure to read, and I spent five fast hours reading it from cover to cover. I am astonished at the amount of work Dr L Prakash has single-handedly put in this book. He has written the text, made the drawings, painted the water-colours, and even edited, formatted and made the layout on his fancy new computer”.
