On behalf of the Piedmont Society, we are delighted to report that the Duke Orthopaedic residency program is ranked fifth in the country! US news and World report teamed up with Doximity (a web based physician network) to rank residency programs in twenty specialties, including orthopaedics. A separate survey of medical students going into orthopaedics suggested that 50% of students will use the information from the ranking in selecting a residency program, showing the significance of having a high ranking. You can see the full report at Doximity's Residency Navigator (You may need to join Doximity to view the full report).
This comprehensive textbook offers the most relevant and concise information available in the world today on all hip-related issues, with sections dedicated to the anatomical, physiological, and basic science considerations of total hip arthroplasty.
Dr. Wheeless enjoys and performs all types of orthopaedic surgery but is renowned for his expertise in total joint arthroplasty (Hip and Knee replacement) as well as complex joint infections. He founded Orthopaedic Specialists of North Carolina in 2001 and practices at Franklin Regional Medical Center and Duke Raleigh Hospital.
A collection of high-quality AAOS resources in general orthopaedics and every specialty interest will help you thoroughly prepare for clinical rounds, ABOS certification and more. Each print title comes complete with an ebook, offering enhanced video, audio and interactive capabilities.
Keeps you up to date with even more high-quality procedural videos, a new chapter on biologics in orthopaedics, and expanded and updated content on hip arthroscopy, patellofemoral arthritis and more.
The scope of the core collection includes anesthesia, nursing, orthopaedics, rehabilitation, and rheumatology. The collection consists of books, journals, videos, and electronic resources. Materials are collected in English and other languages. This includes a collection of standard orthopaedic textbooks in many languages, which may be consulted in the library.
In 1977, the Alumni Association dedicated the medical library to her memory. Her exceptional care and concern for the library and loyalty to HSS have become an integral part of the Hospital's history. Kim Barrett will long be remembered for the depth of her knowledge of orthopaedics, her commitment to the library, and her caring relationship with the residents, faculty, and staff.
Jeffrey Abrams graduated with honors from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and received his M.D. degree from SUNY, Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, New York. He served his surgical internship at Santa Barbara Hospital and his orthopaedic residency at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Jeff is among the first surgeons to perform rotator cuff repairs and stabilization surgery using arthroscopy. As an inventor, he has assisted five surgical companies on equipment designs to perform minimally-invasive surgery. He is a Board member of the Arthroscopy Association of North America and will serve as President in 2015-2016. He is currently on the editorial staff of five orthopaedic periodicals, has written over 60 chapters in orthopaedic textbooks, and is the editor for Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair: A Practical Approach to Management Management of the Unstable Shoulder: Arthroscopic and Open Techniques.
Dr. Abrams continues to serve as an orthopaedic consultant to Princeton University, the College of New Jersey, Mercer County Community College, and local public and private schools. In addition, he serves as a consultant to the National Hockey League, National Football League, Major League Baseball, International Skating Federation, United States Tennis Association, and the United States Ski Team.

Serefeddin Sabuncuoğlu (1385-1468) was the author of the surgical textbook Cerrahiyyetü'l-Haniyye (Imperial Surgery). It was the first illustrated surgical textbook in the Turkish-Islamic medical literature. Cerrahiyyetü'l-Haniyye is significant because it includes Sabuncuoğlu's color illustrations of surgical procedures, incisions, fracture dislocation reduction techniques, and instruments. There are only three handwritten copies. Two originally were written by Sabuncuoğlu and are exhibited in Paris and Istanbul. The book was rediscovered in 1936, but some parts are suspected to be missing. The book currently consists of three chapters divided into 193 sections. The third chapter includes orthopaedics and traumatology, reduction techniques of lower and upper extremities, fractures and dislocations, and relevant Greek, Arabic, and Persian textbooks are cited. Sabuncuoğlu also wrote about surgical treatment of congenital hand anomalies. He was the first to advise placing a wooden splint under the palmar side after hand surgery. We reviewed the sections of Cerrahiyyetü'l-Haniyye related to orthopaedics and traumatology. Compared with previous writings by Hippocrates, Ibn-i Sina, and Al-Zahrawi, there are no major differences in the treatment of fracture dislocations.
The Oxford Textbook of Trauma and Orthopaedics second edition provides comprehensive coverage of the relevant background science, theory, practice, decision-making skills and operative techniques required to provide modern orthopaedic and trauma care. The text is divided into five major sections covering fundamental science, adult orthopaedics, trauma, paediatric orthopaedics, and paediatric trauma, including a major subsection on tumours. Additionally, the adult orthopaedics
