The long awaited second edition of Avian Surgical Anatomy and Orthopedic Management is finally available after 10 years of research and writing. Dr Susan Orosz’s first edition (Avian Surgical Anatomy Thoracic and Pelvic Limbs) was published in 1992. While this first edition has served as THE book for avian surgical orthopedic anatomy, it has been out of print for over 2 decades making ready access to this valuable information difficult.
Drs Orosz, Echols and Redig worked to significantly update this book and finally publish it in 2023. While much of the original content was utilized, the new book has been substantially expanded and contains over 3 times the material. Dr Orosz updated the anatomy found on many of the beautifully illustrated plates. This information is very similar to that found in the first edition. Dr Echols invented new technology allowing researchers to see anatomical features such as blood vessels with the use of CT. The Second Edition has all new images of CT based wing and leg anatomy clearly depicting important anatomic features for several avian species. Dr Redig compiled his years of research treating avian orthopedic injuries working as the director of the Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota. Also new to the second edition are detailed descriptions of avian orthopedic injuries and their management.
The authors sincerely hope this updated book with serve those treating birds and ultimately improve the care of our feathered friends. The book can be found through numerous outlets including veterinary conferences, publishers and of course online (Amazon, etc).
