Saunders, 1997 - Medical - 344 pages
The 2nd Edition of this excellent text surveys all aspects of orthopaedic surgery, including the major sub-specialty areas. Each disease entity is first defined, and then the pathophysiology and anatomy are reviewed. Next, the pertinent history, physical and lab studies (including X-rays) are examined. Differential diagnosis, treatment and prognosis follow. Algorithms summarize management options. This edition features a new chapter on the physical exam, a new chapter on sports medicine, and a new glossary of musculoskeletal terms.
