Pocket Orthopaedic Surgery Is Comprehensive Reference Guide for Health Care Professionals

IBJI is pleased to announce that one of its own, Ritesh Shah, MD , has published his first book. The book, Pocket Orthopaedic Surgery, was released earlier this month by Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading provider of information for professionals and students in medicine, nursing, allied health and pharmacy.
Dr. Shah’s book is described by Wolters Kluwer Health as the “go-to resource for the essential orthopaedic information you need in a high-yield, easy-to-use format. Concise and well organized … this pocket-sized powerhouse delivers highly relevant orthopaedic coverage in an easily portable source, making reference quick and easy.”

The idea for the book came to Shah when he was a surgical resident at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. Like many physicians, Dr. Shah was familiar with Pocket Medicine, an internal medicine handbook that is widely used by medical professionals. Dr. Shah thought that a similar book on orthopaedic surgery would be helpful for his fellow surgery residents and for a host of other health care professionals including family practice doctors, sports medicine doctors and physical therapists who see patients with orthopaedic issues.

Pocket Orthopaedic Surgery was co-edited by Jay Boughanem, MD, who studied with Shah at Northwestern. “This was envisioned as a contemporary resource that captures the latest expertise in terms of diagnostics as well as surgical and non-surgical treatment options,” explained Shah.
Dr. Shah is an orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in hip and knee reconstruction at IBJI. He is one of only five high-volume hip arthroscopists in the Chicago area. He sees patients at IBJI’s Des Plaines, Morton Grove and Lincolnwood locations.

Pocket Orthopaedic Surgery is available on Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com and Target.com.
