Confessions of a Bonehead : What You Need to Know about Your Orthopaedic Surgeon and Your Orthopaedic Surgery
Confessions of a Bonehead is an insider's look at the world of an orthopaedic surgeon. It was written to provide insight to the millions of people afflicted by musculoskeletal problems each year. As an orthopaedic surgeon for over 17 years, Dr. Kurt Ehlert has been continually amazed at the lack of understanding by patients of, not only the business of orthopaedics, but the attitudes orthopaedic surgeons have in their interaction with the people who pay their salaries. "Confessions of a Bonehead" is constructed to demonstrate initially how an orthopaedic surgeon is raised and how he thinks. Then, the book delves in detail into common orthopaedic issues separated by body part. The reader is instructed in what an orthopaedic surgeon is thinking in each situation, trying to demonstrate why they act the way they do. The reader is given the alternative types of treatment and the rationale for each. "Confessions" is designed to make the reader a better informed consumer about their own musculoskeletal issues.
