Hello,
Which textbook would you recommend for ortho surgery? Is it alright to use a general surgery book? If so, which textbook for surgery would you recommend?

Thanks.
Best regards,
Singh.

Are you doing an ortho subspecialty rotation as part of your third year general surgery or subspecialty rotation? Or are you going to be doing an ortho sub-i? For the third yr stuff, I think that a general surgery book is sufficient. NMS Surgery has a section on ortho, and I think that surgical recall has a section on orth too.

If you are asking about a text for an ortho rotation/sub-I --->

I used this...
Essentials of Orthopedic Surgery
by Editor: Sam W. Wiesel
Editor: John N. Delahay

Binding: Paperback, 2 edition
Publisher: Elsevier Science Health Science div
Published Date: 06/01/1997

It is good for basic orthopedic problems, but you are best off referring to your favorite anatomy text for pimping in the O.R. Some ortho department libraries have good texts on certain surgical approaches that emphasize the muscle origins/insertions, nerves, etc. for specific surgeries.

Hope this helps!
