Book Description

This book introduces arthrology in general and of both the upper and lower limbs specifically. It covers the examination of each joint of both limbs in a complete manner, discussing briefly their basic anatomy and physiology. It presents the various tests required for examining the joints and articulations and the systematic approaches that should be followed in cases of diagnosis of diseases and injuries related to them as well as in specific cases of disease and injuries. It also defines special tests required in varied situations and mentions precautions that should be considered while examining patients of specific age or work groups.

Selective consultant orthopaedic surgeons, Dr Maneesh Bhatia and Dipen Menon, have contributed original photographs that have not been documented anywhere before. The photographs were either documented during clinical examinations of foot and ankle or taken using models specifically for this book to assist in simplifying the explanation and promote education. Some chapters also contain line diagrams sketched to illustratively discuss the information being presented. The book will help readers understand the importance of this expanding sub-speciality in orthopaedics and will be useful for orthopaedic surgeons taking various exams in different universities of the world as well as sub-speciality exams of each joint.
