MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

This concise postgraduate textbook of Pediatric Orthopedics focuses firmly on treatment, allowing trainee orthopedic surgeons to make an informed contribution during their Pediatrics rotation and to speak confidently about the approach to individual patients during their specialty exams. While other textbooks concentrate on theory and the comprehensive presentation of all treatment options, Paediatric Orthopaedics: A system of decision-making provides detailed practical insight into available treatments and a strategy for determining which treatment to follow in particular circumstances. Its aim is thereby to provide the gold standard for practice in the field and to be the key practical source of reference for trainees.
