It is a book that attempts a synthesis. It integrates available textual information and makes it useful by explaining how, why and which signs and symptoms develop and how, why and what should be the appropriate management for the given orthopedic condition. No mechanical measure can substitute a careful consideration of a patient's complaint. No device, no matter how clever it may be mechanically, electrically or chemically, can ever substitute the informed mind of a physician. In this era of technological and diagnostic advances, clinics still remain the best place to learn orthopedics. The book has been divided into 10 sections based on various regions of the body. Special sections on clinical examination, tumors, instruments and general orthopedics have been added to make the book a complete aid during the clinical learning in orthopedics.
