"Handbood of Fractures" is THE "go-to" guide for any first-year ortho resident. At first, I was put off by its small dimensions (the majority of our ortho texts are the size of smart cars), but bought it on the recommendation of an older (and wiser) resident friend. As a PGY-1, it is an indispensible starting point. True, it isn't the end-all, but any book that contained all there is to reference re: all ortho issues would have to be moved into place by a small crane.

If I were to describe the book in a phrase, it would be as an ideal "launching pad." Any more detailed study can be readily ferreted out, but in the trenches, "Handbook of Fractures" is near indispensible as an instant reference for everything from casting to trauma call. Additionally, it is the best beginner's manual I have ever seen (and I have read a LOT) for establishing at least a foothold in the many different directions that ortho can take you.

If ortho is your future (or present), get "Handbook of Fractures." I only wish I had discovered it as a medical student!

Format: Paperback
I'm an Emergency Medicine resident, I felt that the vast majority of information in the book did not apply to EM residents. Too much info regarding grading of fractures and operative technique. Grazes over the topics needed for family medicine, urgeny care, emergency care (what needs admission, what needs emergency consultation, etc). Recommend this book for orthopedics, but not Emergency Medicine.

After wearing out my third edition, I decided to get the fourth. It is slightly wider, which makes it less easy to fit in the back pocket of scrubs, but it has more information on treatment modalities. I would recommend this for any resident.

For medical students rotating through ortho trauma or on overnight call this is a great reference. Highly recommend this book.

Excellent, met my expectations. Since it is a compendium that allows a quick review of the traumatic pathology, classifications and what can you carry on a smart phone in your pocket.

Awesome text book and very useful! However the amazon ipad version has very poor image quality. In most images you cannot read image print. Or other image identifiers.
