Orthopedics for the General Practitioner.

Orthopedics for the General Practitioner. This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract The book is dedicated to the hard-working general practitioner, for whom it is primarily intended, but it reaches much beyond, being an excellent introduction to orthopedics for the beginner in this specialty. What makes the book particularly attractive is the way its 14 chapters are organized, with separation of the diseases of childhood and topographical discussions of adult orthopedics in separate chapters. There are no unnecessary repetitions, and the facts are stated clearly and without reservations. There are many recommendable features. The division of childhood affections according to the age period at which they are observed instead of according to pathological findings is a very practical point, one which the practitioners will appreciate. The deformities of childhood are, in my opinion, most adequately treated, without entering into discussion of controversial points, and the treatment is recommended unequivocally—one needs only to mention congenital dislocation of the hip, clubfoot, and cerebral palsy http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png A.M.A. Archives of Internal Medicine American Medical Association
