About this book

​Topics in pediatric orthopedics routinely surface in general pediatrics and primary care, whether on board exams or in clinical practice. From birth injuries to musculoskeletal infections, there are many conditions and presenting complaints that must be addressed by the primary care physician or pediatrician. This concise and targeted handbook contains just the need to know conditions, injuries, and diseases necessary for residents and even seasoned clinicians to brush up on pediatric orthopedic topics with ease. Information is contained within themed chapters (like neuromuscular diseases or musculoskeletal infections) and also by anatomical region (hip, knee foot, spine, etc.). This book gives readers the basic knowledge to be able to identify common orthopedic conditions, indications to either treat these conditions or refer patient to an orthopedist, and covers the entire required curriculum needed to answer musculoskeletal questions on the pediatrics board exam.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This pocket-sized book covers children’s orthopedic disorders and injuries. It is intended as a practical and efficient resource to help clinicians who are not orthopedic surgeons treat children with orthopedic problems. The audience is primary care physicians, medical trainees, nurses, and physician assistants. … I highly recommend it to all primary care providers and others caring for children with musculoskeletal disorders and trauma.” (Edward Abraham, Doody’s Book Reviews, January, 2014)
