Thieme Sweeps the PSP Awards

New York/Stuttgart - Thieme Publishers is pleased to announce that "Surgical Treatment of Orthopedic Trauma" is the winner of the 2007 PSP Award for Excellence in the Clinical Medicine category. The publisher swept the category, also taking a second-place "Honorable Mention" for "The Legacy of Harvey Cushing: Profiles in Patient Care."

"Surgical Treatment of Orthopedic Trauma," by James P. Stannard, MD, Andrew H. Schmidt, MD, and Philip J. Kregor, MD, provides up-to-date information on surgical treatments of a broad range of injuries, from complex pelvic and spinal trauma to periarticular fractures and knee dislocations. The revolutionary book, consisting of concise yet detailed surgical procedures, is accompanied by four high-quality DVDs, with over 18 hours of narrated surgical videos.

Derived from Harvey Cushing's remarkable personal collection in the Brain Tumor Registry, "The Legacy of Harvey Cushing: Profiles in Patient Care," by Aaron A. Cohen-Gadol, MD and Dennis D. Spencer, MD, is a stunning historical account of Cushing's surgical cases and research from 1905 to 1930. The book showcases the extraordinary contribution that Cushing made to the advancement of neurological surgery in the twentieth century. The perfectly preserved material, that was housed at the Yale University Library for over 60 years, is the oldest catalog of neurological and neuropathological disease. In particular, the book features extraordinary photographs of patients which were painstakingly digitized from glass slides.
