Main description:

This textbook is based on the curriculum for US, UK, Canadian and Australasian Orthopedic trainees. It offers an in-depth summary of the knowledge needed to pass the boards and FRCS examination in Trauma and Orthopedic surgery. The focus is on basic information on every orthopedic subspecialty, including: surgical anatomy, basic sciences, adult reconstruction, pediatric orthopedics, foot and ankle surgery, orthopedic pathology, the spine, sports surgery, upper limb, wrist and hand surgery, and orthopedic traumas. All sections are written by experts in the respective field and utilize a consistent bullet-point format, chosen to facilitate the learning experience and help readers memorize and organize knowledge. A clear and concise "take-home message" section precedes each topic, and key references are highlighted at the end of each chapter.
