About this book


The book presents a problem-based, rational approach to the diagnosis of orthopaedic problems in children. It is divided into five sections based on the age at which specific problems may be encountered; the newborn, the neonate and infant, the toddler and the pre-school child, the child in the school-going age and the adolescent. The authors outline a systematic approach to arrive at a tentative diagnosis by asking relevant questions related to the presenting symptom and then performing a thorough clinical examination. They then suggest the most appropriate investigations to confirm the diagnosis. Each chapter deals with the common conditions that may lead to the problem; the rarer causes of the problem are listed at the end. This feature would make the book a practical manual and a high quality reference source. An important feature of the book is the number and quality of illustrations and video clips in the electronic version.
