This leading introductory textbook of orthopaedics provides medical students, trainee surgeons and other health professionals with an invaluable overview of this important specialty. Praised in previous editions for the systematic approach, balanced content and easy-to-read style, the new edition has been brought fully up to date, with additional detail on anatomy, an improved focus on actual diseases and clinical signs and the introduction of handy 'stop check' points. Over 800 illustrations, many new to this third edition, are arranged as composites to provide a clear, pictorial account of the subject, and can be used in association with the text and as a revision tool.The book remains the first choice for those seeking a brief account of this large and complex subject, and is a natural precursor to the more detailed coverage offered by its larger parent 'Apley's System of Orthopaedics and Fractures' for those wishing to pursue a career in orthopaedics.show more
