About this book

Introduction

From the reviews:

In a very concise and extremely well organized manner "Orthopedic Traumatology" discusses the important principles underlying the management of orthopedic trauma, which has undergone significant changes recently. The book will benefit residents in orthopedics as well as orthopedic surgeons in developed and developing countries. The book’s structure facilitates review of the material before board exams and the quick retrieval of information.

"Dr. Ip’s … book is aimed at doctors in training and, where appropriate, paramedical staff who regularly deal with trauma victims. With relevance to the UK, this will mainly mean FY2, ST1, and ST2 doctors. … It is written in the style of a thesis, with nearly every paragraph numbered and subdivided so that a detailed index is given at the beginning of each chapter. … It scored well in terms of portability and relevance of topics … ." (Bill Ryan, Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons, Vol. 89, 2007)
