Description - Surgery, Science and Industry by Thomas Schlich

This volume charts the history of the worldwide introduction of an operative treatment method for broken bones, osteosynthesis, by a Swiss-based association called AO. The success of the close co-operation between the AO's surgeons, scientists and manufacturers in establishing a complicated and risky technique as a standard treatment sheds light on the mechanisms of medical innovation at the crossroads of surgery, science and industry and the nature of modern medicine in general.
