Highly Commended, BMA Medical Book Awards 2013

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.

Mercer's Textbook of Orthopaedics and Trauma
will be invaluable to trauma and orthopaedic surgeons at all stages of their professional lives. It will also be an indispensable reference for clinicians, rheumatologists, primary care physicians, and many other health professionals who need reliable and up-to-date information on the musculoskeletal system.

Print Versions of this book also include access to the ebook version.
