Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
New Edited Book Winner at The Royal Society of Medicine &The Society of Authors’ Medical Book Awards
“Out of several undergraduate texts on musculoskeletal disease, this is both comprehensive and comprehensible and a valuable addition to departmental and students’ personal libraries.”

"This book is the best comprehensive work I have seen on the musculoskeletal system for medical students. I highly recommend the book to all medical students, junior residents, and primary care physicians."
Edward Abraham, MD(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine), Doody Enterprises, Inc. Nov 2008

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Edward Abraham, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This basic book deals with the management of patients with musculoskeletal disorders.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide medical students with a comprehensive guide to orthopedic, trauma, and rheumatology medicine.
Audience: The audience is primarily medical students. Primary care physicians and allied professionals are a secondary audience.
Features: The first of the book's two sections includes overviews of the three disciplines. The second section includes 100 clinical cases of common diagnoses that test students' problem solving skills with questions and answers. Access to an online student consult learning tool is available at no extra charge. The book is well illustrated and summary boxes highlight the important points, covering the etiology, epidemiology, clinical features, diagnostic tests, and clinical management of each disorder.
Assessment: This book, edited by four physicians from the U.K., is the best comprehensive work I have seen on the musculoskeletal system for medical students. A similar U.S. book is Musculoskeletal Medicine, Bernstein et al. (American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, 2003). There has been a drive by the AAOS to unify the teaching of the musculoskeletal system to medical students. I highly recommend the U.K. book to all medical students, junior residents, and primary care physicians.
