Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: Although many books have been written about the various subcategories in orthopedics ranging from pediatrics to tumor to trauma, none provide such a comprehensive, efficient, and concise overview of the field as this one does. This wonderful review book encompasses the broad spectrum of diagnosis and treatment options in the field.
Purpose: In the preface, the authors note that this book can serve as a reference for students and primary care and emergency department physicians, as well as a go-to review for residents in training and orthopedic surgeons who need to remain current in areas outside of their subspecialty or prepare for recertification requirements. These are very worthy goals that, before reviewing this book, I would have said were nearly impossible to achieve. Nonetheless, the more I went through it, the more I liked this book. Admittedly, it cannot provide the technical know-how and pearls for every orthopedic procedure, but as a review of diagnosis and treatment options, it is excellent.
Audience: This book will be well received by medical students, orthopedics residents, and allied healthcare providers who take care of patients with musculoskeletal problems, as well as orthopedic attendings who want a concise overview of this broad specialty. Unlike most books that use a who's who to serve as chapter authors, this one turns to writers ranging from residents in training to full professors who have really thought about the needs of this audience. Each chapter follows a similar template, which makes the book that much more readable.
Features: The fundamental proposition of this book is that making good diagnoses leads treatment options and good outcomes for patients. Each chapter carries a global title, such as sports medicine, and is subcategorized to cover the entire field. To accomplish this in single book, each region is concise, focused, and efficient. The figures are black and white and relatively few, as the book favors a written presentation. This approach is neither good nor bad, it is simply the choice the authors made. While respecting cost, color figures would spice things up a bit and increase the overall value of the book.
Assessment: Because this looked like yet another review book, written by authors who are not among the most well known in the field, I feared it would not add significantly to what is already available. I was wrong. This book is comprehensive and easier to read than other reviews, such as board preps or prep reviews for the orthopaedic in-training examination. Because it is so reader friendly, I see myself turning to this book as my most efficient and comfortable review of the broad field of orthopedics.
