Providing a concise approach to the subject, the new edition of Lecture Notes: Orthopaedics and Fractures reflects recent changes to medical education and includes new management techniques. Divided into two major sections, 'General Principles' covers form and function, fractures, trauma and musculo-skeletal disorders; while 'Regional Orthopaedics' covers the examination of and conditions affecting individual regions of the body i.e. foot and ankle, spine and trunk. This ensures the content is integrated to allow better and easier navigation.

Featuring an extensive collection of X-rays and photographs of orthopaedic conditions, Lecture Notes: Orthopaedics and Fractures is ideal for any medical students, junior doctors, nurses or allied health professionals who want a core introduction to this important specialty.
