This book presents Dr. Albee's original applied technic for bone-graft work.

Dr. Albee here gives you his own successful technic and his own methods of dressing and management, all illustrated with original pictures.

Dr. Albee is a firm believer in the autogenous graft, and in making it he uses the most improved instruments and tools, all of which are shown you, and their use in actual work. This is the only book going fully into this important question of bone surgery, a field of surgical endeavor that is attracting pronounced attention over the entire surgical world.
