This book provides a comprehensive, evidence-based guide on how to manage pediatric orthopedic problems safely and confidently. The format allows the reader to identify key points whilst working in their busy clinical practice. Each chapter is co-written by an orthopedic surgeon and general practitioner to ensure the content is relevant to primary care, but also sufficiently detailed to meet the needs of those in specialist training. The book is divided into two parts; general topics including assessment, normal variants, infections and specific disorders; followed by a section based on specific anatomical regions.
Pediatric Orthopedics for Primary Healthcare: Evidence-Based Practice will be an essential resource for a wide audience including but not limited to general practitioners and trainees, pediatric orthopedic surgeons, trauma surgeons, orthopedic residents, emergency department doctors, physiotherapists, podiatrists and medical students who are seeking a concise, yet comprehensive evidence-based resource for this important specialty.
