The scope of orthopedic knowledge has expanded to such a degree that it has become increasingly difficult to maintain a fundamental grasp of the required knowledge base. This is compounded by the time constraints on adult learning, with the student or practitioner faced with ever-increasing demands on their time. This text is a much needed resource of orthopedic knowledge, which will prove useful not only to those in training but also to those faced by the ever-increasing demands of certification and recertification examinations. Well illustrated and organized into eight chapters extending from basic science to every specialty of orthopedic surgery (such as hand, foot and ankle, sports medicine, and spine) and put forward in outline form, the reader will find it easy to locate information on a specific subject for direct patient care, conferences or rounds, or examination review. Alternatively, the organization of each chapter facilitates an overall review of the subject matter. By virtue of its succinct style of presentation, this text will prove exceedingly useful to students and practitioners throughout the world.

From the reviews: "This ... book provides a very brief and concise, but systematic cover of actual orthopaedic knowledge and techniques. ... it can be helpful for a quick reference or refreshment of knowledge on unfamiliar sections." (C. Delloye, Acta Orthopaedia Belgica, Vol. 71 (4), 2005) "The author, who is from Hong Kong, states ... that the purpose of this book is at least three-fold. Firstly, it should be helpful to read before professional examinations ... . Secondly, it is aimed not only at surgeons-in-training but also at surgeons requiring recertification ... . Thirdly, it is directed at the specialised surgeon ... . The information is generally well organised, providing pertinent revision material for trainees ... ." (John Henderson, Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Vol. 88, 2006) "An excellent, practical, highly compressed but thick pocket book of principles. It contains much more thoughtful consideration of technical problems than is usual. Highly recommended." (Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Vol. 87-b (11), 2005) "This single-authored, concise, softcover book covers musculoskeletal injuries in adults. The purpose is to provide a concise and current curriculum for the management of orthopedic trauma which can be used by orthopedic trainees and trained orthopedists preparing for testing in musculoskeletal trauma. The book is primarily written for orthopedic residents. Other medical professionals caring for adult trauma patients can benefit from its content. ... I strongly recommend this work to all orthopedic residents around the world as an excellent resource in trauma." (Edward Abraham, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2008)
