Lippincott Williams & Wilkins
Wiesel (orthopedic surgery, Georgetown U. Hospital) et al. assemble 19 chapters on principles of orthopedic surgery for orthopedic residents in the early years of their training. A group of surgeons mostly from the US discuss general principles, the various modalities commonly used for patient evaluation and the evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal infection, metabolic bone disease, and musculoskeletal oncology, as well as rheumatological diseases affecting the musculoskeletal system, orthopedic trauma, and the treatment of sports medicine patients. Subsequent chapters are organized by subspecialty, addressing anatomy, evaluation, traumatic injuries, atraumatic conditions, diagnosis, presentation, management, and outcomes for specific body areas. A searchable full text and image bank are available online.
