The biology and biometrics of the musculoskeletal system
Orthopaedic Basic Science gives you a more in-depth understanding of the biology and biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system as they relate to clinical practice.
The book comes in at 544 pages and is divided into sections covering: basic principles of orthopaedic surgery; physiology of musculoskeletal tissues; basic principles of treatment; and clinical sciences. Each section is subsequently subdivided into chapters to cover all relevant topics.
I found the diagrams included to be particularly useful in explaining difficult concepts such as the stress–strain curve, blood supply to flexor tendons, etc.
This text was produced to serve as a reference for the practising orthopaedic surgeon.
This book is recommended to build up full understanding of the basic sciences in orthopaedics.
