Physicians are under increasing pressure to provide quality health care in the most cost-effective way possible. The escalating costs of orthopedic care are driving the need to base clinical decision making on evidence-based data that will help physicians provide optimal care to every patient. Evidence-based medicine is the future of orthopedic surgery. In a world where the quality of surgical outcomes will be increasingly measured, evidence-based data will heavily guide decision making in orthopedic trauma. Orthopedic Traumatology: An Evidence-Based Approach provides the reader with a focused and comprehensive review of the literature surrounding the management of the orthopedic trauma patient. The book centers around clinical scenarios with each chapter based on a specific case. Renowned orthopedic trauma surgeons from across the country serve as contributing authors, writing based on these scenarios and giving their expert opinions on management while using data as their guide. Each chapter describes and summarizes the data, but achieves this objective in a case-based format. Each case is brief, but includes relevant imaging. The case scenarios are heavily weighted toward treatment of more controversial injuries. As there is currently no book on the market that focuses solely on orthopedic trauma and evidence-based medicine, this book is sure to be a useful reference for residents and practicing physicians alike.

It is stating the obvious to say that the foot in childhood is different in many respects from the foot in adulthood, but the differences can be often overlooked. The physical differences are readily apparent of course, but arguably the most important of the many differences is the malleability of the child’s foot and leg, and the potential for influencing its structure and function in the long-term. This is a potential that must not be taken lightly. This unique book is an excellent learning resource suitable for students and health care providers in the fields of pediatrics, orthopedics, neurology, podiatry, physiotherapy, orthotics, nursing and other foot care professionals.
