Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The reader can expect to find a rather complete explanation of the condition and the current methods of treatment. Its real value… is a review source for the orthopaedic resident or as a quick reference for the practicing orthopaedic surgeon" -- JBJS
Dennis Mess
This second edition is a review of current orthopedic knowledge, both basic science and clinical, in an expanded outline form. The purpose was to distill orthopedic knowledge into an easy-to-use self-study guide. The primary audience is orthopedic residents reviewing for in-training exams. It is also a review text for practitioners taking board exams or recertification. Medical students may find it helpful during clinical rotations. Its unique features are its concise, well-organized outline format and appropriate illustrations. This is a very user-friendly book for those studying before test time. This book is comprehensive in its overall scope and concise in its distillation of core knowledge. Although not designed for reference libraries, it should be a big seller in medical bookstores.
