5.0 out of 5 stars All must a classic in orthopaedics...maybe the real one...
Iam an orthopedist from Costa Rica and have read this book several times, I think it is a must have for the junion surgeon and a happy friend for the senior surgeon, maybe the first book a resident has to have, and enjoy every night at hospital, while one ask oneself "What amI doing here...", Dr. Salter was a Genious of the orthopedics .

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but somewhat outdated reference text
I bought this book to read when I was out of commission from a knee surgery and had a lot of spare time. It's a good reference book, but somewhat antiquated. I'd look elsewhere if I had to purchase another muscloskeletal text.

This review is from: Textbook of Disorders and Injuries of the Musculoskeletal System (Hardcover)
Before i begin with my residence in orthopedia, i had very few knowledge of the speciality, trying to learn the most i go for the classics but that was harder, when i found the Dr Salter's book i really understand the purposes of the speciality,the tecnical words, the skills that i need and i loved.If you need a real book that explains in the best manner what the orthopedia is , the best choice is that textbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good textbook, December 20, 2008
This review is from: Textbook of Disorders and Injuries of the Musculoskeletal System (Hardcover)
I never found a textbook so humble and encourage the readers to really understand the content like this one. It's easy to read and contains many great graphics (all in black and white color). Dr. Salter made a very good approach to the readers and explains all the basic things we need to know about orthopedics.

5.0 out of 5 stars My attending recommended this book to me and said residents are divided ..., December 20, 2014
This review is from: Textbook of Disorders and Injuries of the Musculoskeletal System (Hardcover)
My attending recommended this book to me and said residents are divided into Salter and non salter read.. I had a chance to review a copy before purchase and in my humble opinion it is concise and thorough, I admit that somethings are best seen in the clinic for the correlation to be impressed in the mind otherwise one can read on and forget about the next day. Somethings one will never see unless traveling to some remote region.
