The Shoulder – By EA Codman

On behalf of the ASES Foundation and the Board of Trustees, we present to you our reprinting of this classic book by the man
who made the first and the most lasting imprint on our field. Ernest Amory Codman’s The Shoulder: Rupture of the Supraspinatus Tendon and Other Lesions In or About the Subacromial Bursa has been, is now, and will always be a must read and a constant reference for those individuals who have any interest in the field of shoulder. At the prompting of Bill Mallon and Carl Basamania, we have indexed the entire book for greater ease of reference. As Codman wrote in the Autobiographic Preface, “And now this book is presented to you as a final illustration of my life work, rather than as a monograph on the shoulder.” It is our hope that this book will find its way into private and public libraries to allow for a deeper appreciation of the shoulder, and of EA Codman. 100% of the proceeds will support the ASES Foundation and its programs.
