This is the first volume of our Orthopaedic Surgery Essentials Series, designed for orthopaedic surgery residents’ rotations and for general orthopaedists and primary care practitioners. The book presents the essential information needed to evaluate and initiate treatment on a child’s orthopaedic problem. It can be easily read cover to cover during a one- or two-month rotation or used for quick reference immediately before evaluating a patient.
The user-friendly format features ample visual aids, including treatment algorithms, bulleted lists, charts, tables, and illustrations. The table of contents reflects the venue in which disorders are usually first encountered—outpatient clinic, emergency department, or specialty clinic.
