4-STARS from Doody's Review
"This book is extremely well done. The material is effectively presented with abundant color illustrations. Important information and suggestions for primary care physicians are spot on, such as obtaining a standing radiograph for a patient suspected of having knee arthritis, among others. The advice to avoid excessive ordering of MRI studies by those not planning to implement the results in their treatment plan is a good strategy and a money saver. I highly recommend this book to all primary care physicians caring for patients with musculoskeletal disorders. It is currently the best work on this topic available." - Edward Abraham, MD, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine, on behalf of Doody's Review Service

Part of the highly respected Primary Care Series, this2nd edition of Lippincott's Primary Care Orthopaedics provides family practitioners, internists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and osteopathic and chiropractic physicians with the reference source they need to confidently diagnose and treat the most common musculoskeletal patient injuries seen in an office setting.

This full-color, highly illustrated volume is designed to deliver the most useful information in a consistent and easy-to-reference format. Each chapter opens with a quick synopsis of the problem, followed by treatment recommendations and clinical pearls. Important sections like "Clinical Points", "Not to be Missed", and "When to Refer" are highlighted to better guide the busy physician in making treatment decisions.
