The first handbook-sized reference designed specifically for orthopaedic students on clinical rotation

The guidance you need to work with patients

5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW (of earlier edition)

"Major areas in orthopedics including anatomy, kinesiology, and biomechanics of movement are covered, along with a healthy dose of pathology that impacts patient function. Clinical pearls appear in highlighted boxes throughout, and camera icons indicate where video clips should be viewed. This second edition is more comprehensive than the first. Overall, this is a valuable reference that achieves a nice balance between detailing examination and treatment. Other books tend to be limited to addressing only one of these areas, but not both. This combination makes the book unique." — Doody's
