The third edition of Postgraduate Orthopaedics has been fully updated, revised and expanded to meet the challenges of a continually changing exam format, providing detailed core orthopaedic knowledge and insight into tactics and pre-exam planning to increase a candidate's chance of success.

Written by a core of authors chosen specifically for their knowledge of the key factors for exam success, this edition includes more illustrations and diagrams and additional exam-focused material for the trickier areas of the syllabus. The trauma chapter has been separated into four distinct sections to improve the overall trauma content. The book also includes a dedicated chapter on what books to read, reflecting the fact that this area has become more complicated in recent years, and an applied basic science chapter, which focuses on basic science viva questions in detail. This guide continues to evolve and has established itself as the definitive text for the FRCS (Tr & Orth) exam.

Key Features:

  • Examination corner material provides real-life examples of how questions may unfold on the day, along with tips and tricks to navigate tough questioning, providing realistic and practical help to the reader
  • The new edition has many more illustrations, tables and radiographs, which help the reader to more fully understand the material being presented
  • Detailed explanations of high yield orthopaedic topics are provided, training candidates in the higher order thinking that is a key defining criteria for success in the exam
