Overview

This user-friendly, comprehensive text offers a superb introduction to basic orthopedics. A modified outline format, as well as the use of bold type, tables, and figures enhance the reader's understanding of the material. The book's structure also makes it an excellent study guide or patient management tool.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Edward Abraham, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This textbook deals with basic existing knowledge of the musculoskeletal system.
Purpose: The purpose is to serve as a quick office reference for basic orthopedic knowledge and a teaching source for students. These worthwhile objectives are met in most instances.
Audience: The book is written for medical students, primary care physicians, junior orthopedic residents, and other allied medical professionals. Both authors are active orthopedists practicing in Texas.
Features: The book is divided into 22 chapters. Most of the chapters cover adult disorders and injuries; pediatric orthopedics and basic sciences are covered in separate chapters. There is a useful appendix which lists all common medications used in orthopedics. Information on treatment in some areas is too brief. For instance, the reader is not told how long a Pavlik harness is used when treating hip dysplasia.
Assessment: The authors are to be commended for packing so much important information into 390 pages. Also, I find the material very accurately described in each chapter. I highly recommend this book to students, primary care physicians, and allied professionals. Orthopedists can find it most useful to review in anatomy, fracture classifications, and so on. I plan to recommend this book to our medical students. Medical book shops are strongly advised to have it available for their customers.
