Textbook of Orthopedics & Trauma (4 Volumes)

by GS Kulkarni, Sushrut Babhulkar

This book discusses orthopedics and trauma in brief. Orthopedic surgery or orthopedics is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders. Trauma is injury or damage to a biological organism caused by physical harm from an external source. Major trauma is also injury that can potentially lead to serious long-term outcomes like chronic pain. Orthopedic problems of the developing countries are different from those in the West, and most of the books and journals on the subject emanate from the Western countries. Incidences of paralytic poliomyelitis, tuberculosis, chronic osteomyelitis, leprosy, etc. are rampant and so are the road-side accidents which are common in the developing countries. Conditions associated with trauma, such as nonunion (with or without infection), malunion, deformity stiff joints, etc. are day-to-day taxing problems. The textbook has been designed to adequately cover all such conditions which are missing from or inadequately described in the Western textbooks. The main aim of the book is to give comprehensive information about diseases and problems peculiar to the developing countries and to provide one source of orthopedic information. Each chapter is written by a surgeon who has a special interest in the subject. This book serves as a quick text refresher and an easy reference to orthopedic surgeons.
