Overview

Part of the highly respected Primary Care Series, this 2nd 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.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: Books in the Lippincott's Primary Care series offer a hands-on approach to everyday problems encountered in the clinic. This one on orthopedic problems is a graphically intense, quick reference that makes the diagnosis and treatment options simple.
Purpose: The stated goal is to present a primer and treatment guide for the most common musculoskeletal problems seen in primary care. As the diagnosis and treatment options have changed significantly over time, this is a most noble goal and the authors have done extremely well in meeting the challenge.
Audience: This book is for everyone who practices in a primary care setting. The text is easy to understand and supplemented by many graphics, and it assumes little a priori knowledge of the subject or diagnosis. The authors are practicing clinicians who understand how to get to the point.
Features: The series uses distinct markers for "Not to be Missed" and "When to Refer," which are extremely useful. In addition, the book includes access to a website that has a search function for the text, video clips for procedures, and downloadable patient information sheets. The illustrations, figures, and reproductions of radiologic studies are extremely good and are a major highlight of the book, as is the inclusion of the ICD-9 codes for different diagnoses.
Assessment: This should be in every primary care medical library and physical therapy clinic. The patient aids are tremendous. This stands out from most orthopedics books focused on the nonorthopedic practitioner.
