A Manual of Orthopaedic Terminology 8th Edition

In its 38th year, A Manual of Orthopaedic Terminology has been a companion reference for anyone who needs the most up-to-date terms, acronyms, and codes terms relating to clinical orthopaedics and research. Portable and easily accessible, this authoritative compilation categorizes and cross-references terms to enable those unfamiliar with orthopaedics to locate a term in its proper context.  Unlike a traditional A-Z dictionary format, terms are organized by topic―facilitating faster search results with related terms appearing on the same or immediately adjacent page.

“…It will continue to serve as the go-to reference for individuals needing to access orthopaedic information to serve their individual audiences.” Foreword by: Marc F. Swiontkowski,Professor, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Minnesota, Feb 2015
