About this Textbook

The Bone Book: An Orthopedic Pocket Manual is a complete guide to the essentials of orthopedics in today's busy hospital and outpatient settings. Concise chapters provide the basic knowledge that all orthopedic surgery residents, medical students, and supporting staff must know to handle the full range of conditions, injuries, and diseases for patients in the operating room and emergency department. Included are essentials of musculoskeletal anatomy, physical examination, orthopedic emergencies, and emergency room consults, including care for fractures, dislocations, bone/joint infections, and spinal cord injuries. Additional chapters cover operative room basics, such as patient positioning, prepping, and draping, and common orthopedic techniques, such as splinting, joint aspiration, and regional blocks. By compiling information commonly passed down from senior to junior surgeon, the authors have distilled a wide range of orthopedic fundamentals into one easy-to-read book.

Reviews

“The primary audience is medical students and orthopedic interns. Physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and physical and occupational therapists are secondary audiences. ... This is a well-written and illustrated pocketbook that plays an important role in medical education. It remains to be seen if this type of publication can compete with the disrupting effects of iPhone search engines. At the moment, this book continues to be highly recommended to the affected medical community.” (Edward Abraham, Doody’s Book Reviews, August 21, 2020)
