Overview

This Edition differs substantially from the first. Ten new chapters have been added. The main additions are a new section on orthopedic trauma, and the inclusion of pediatric orthopedics throughout the text. The book is split into two parts. Part I contains the general scene-setting chapters, this section has been expanded to 10 chapters with the inclusion of nutrition and basic principles of trauma/surgical care. Part II begins with a reappraisal of the extent of orthopedic morbidity, and then subdivides to take a pathology-orientated look at the common orthopedic problems. Conditions are explained and diagnostic and treatment methods set out, but the emphasis will be on nursing management.
