Description

Fully illustrated throughout with a wide range of scans, images and line drawings, ABC of Orthopaedics and Trauma provides practical guidance on the diagnosis, treatment and management of orthopaedic conditions, and assists with the initial assessment based on common presentations. Written by a team of renowned expert orthopaedic surgeons and rheumatologists, it includes coverage of the current national guidelines from NICE and professional bodies.

Twenty-four chapters cover all the major areas of this vast speciality using a digestible and reader-friendly approach, including sections on fractures, joint replacements, rheumatological disorders, osteoarthritis, emergencies, and post-operative care. Introduction to specialist topics like metabolic bone disease, peripheral nerve injury, paediatric orthopaedics and tumours are also featured. Topics consist of history and examination, investigation and initial management of common orthopaedic trauma and elective presentations.

In addition, this full-colour, user-friendly reference guide offers readers a look at the day-to-day clinical practice of a speciality that will affect at least half of the global population at some point, covering further chapters on epidemiology, biomechanics, common procedures, future developments and education.

ABC of Orthopaedics and Trauma is an excellent resource for all healthcare professionals caring for patients with musculoskeletal and orthopaedic related disorders. This will be a valuable reference to orthopaedic trainees, sports physicians, physiotherapists, nurses, occupational therapists, clinical researchers and student doctors.
