The Oxford Textbook of Trauma and Orthopaedics second edition provides comprehensive coverage of the relevant background science, theory, practice, decision-making skills and operative techniques required to provide modern orthopaedic and trauma care. The text is divided into five major sections covering fundamental science, adult orthopaedics, trauma, paediatric orthopaedics, and paediatric trauma, including a major subsection on tumours. Additionally, the adult orthopaedics section is further sub divided to cover the joint and bone systems of the body.
Edited by a transatlantic team with more than 300 specialist contributors, the second edition of this award-winning textbook is unrivalled in the field. The content is extensively referenced, highly illustrated and contains useful summary boxes throughout the text.
This new edition has been completely revised; it now fits snugly into one volume and contains all the information needed by a trainee taking the FRCS (trauma and orthopaedics), or an equivalent exam. The topics covered are based on the British Orthopaedic Associaton curriculum so it is comprehensive and highly relevant to trainees and teaching consultants wishing to keep up to date with current practice and thinking. References have been condensed to a list of important 'Further Reading'. Illustrations are plentiful, while summary boxes on every page allow the reader to check the key points in every chapter during revision.
For the first time the printed text is complemented by a fully searchable online version that provides active links through to primary research papers, and images in the book can be downloaded to PowerPoint slides for teaching and presentation purposes. Individual purchasers of the print edition of the Oxford Textbook of Trauma and Orthopaedics are entitled to six months' free access to the online version.
