Review quote

-This concise work fulfills the important role of introducing medical students to orthopedic trauma. Additionally, it teaches orthopedic residents, in a step-by-step manner, the correct ways to assess and manage fractures and dislocations. General orthopedists caring for trauma patients can benefit greatly from this book. I strongly recommend it without reservation.-Edward Abraham, MD(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine), DOODY'S BOOK REVIEW SERVICE UPDATE, October 2008 "This concise work fulfills the important role of introducing medical students to orthopedic trauma.
