  • Summary - Ortho. Resident Texts


    Below is the summary of my posting, which asked for recommendations on text
    books for orthopaedic residents. The general interest texts are listed by
    their popularity. I have added the cost of each book (and any other
    information I thought was needed). Thanks to all who responded.

    Cheers, Trey Crisco

    By far the overall favorite was:

    Orthopaedic Basic Science, Ed Simon S.R., 1994, American Academy
    of Orthopaedic Surgeons, ($80).

    Also popular for general reference were:

    Basic Biomechanics of the Musculoskeletal System, Nordin, M. &
    Frankel, V.H. (Eds.), 1989, 2nd Edn.Williams& Wilkens ($45).

    Basic Orthopaedic Biomechanics, ed. Mow V. and Hayes, T., 1991,
    Raven Press, ($76.50).

    In specific areas of interest:

    Churchill Livingston, ($67).
