Orthopaedic Surgery: Principles of Diagnosis and Treatment

Front Cover
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Dec 21, 2011 - Medical - 822 pages
Orthopaedic Surgery: Principles of Diagnosis and Treatment is a concise text ideally suited for the first two years of the orthopaedics residency. PGY1 residents can read the text from cover to cover to gain a general foundation of knowledge. PGY2 and PGY3 residents can use specific chapters to review a subspecialty before starting a new rotation or seeing a patient with a subspecialty attending. The General Principles section covers basic science in enough detail to prepare readers for in-service and board exams. The Orthopaedic Subspecialties section focuses on diagnosis and management of the most common pathologic entities. Each subspecialty chapter covers history, physical examination, imaging, and common diagnoses. For each diagnosis, the book sets out the typical presentation, options for nonoperative and operative management, and expected outcomes.
