Building on the strengths of Amputations and Prosthetics 2nd Edition, Doctors Bella J. May and Margery Lockard have joined forces to deliver—with superb clarity—a research-based, problem-solving approach to prosthetics and orthotics.

A clinical focus with unfolding case studies, stimulating questions, and an outstanding art program of 550 photographs and line illustrations make important concepts easy to understand and apply. You’ll also find a discussion, unique to this text, of the pathology of what necessitates amputations and why you would choose one prosthetic/orthotic over another.
