    Orthopaedic problems account for over one-third of all medical and surgical problems. Mercer's Textbook of Orthopaedics and Trauma provides all the information required by the senior trainee or qualified specialist to improve understanding and management of any given condition or disease in this area.

    Since its first edition over 75 years ago, this volume has been considered the definitive orthopaedic text, integrating clinical knowledge of musculoskeletal disorders with the latest basic science research. Now in its tenth edition, the book has been comprehensively revised by a stellar team of international authors. This evidence-based text reflects the knowledge distilled from worldwide literature, clinical experience, basic science research, and various orthopaedic exit examinations.
