Orthopaedics and Traumatology: The essential Guide is a completely new textbook in the English language but has a long history in the Netherlands, Europe. For physicians and medical students, for physiotherapists and students studying for this profession, yet also for general practitioners and orthopaedic nurses, this textbook has been the main source of orthopaedic knowledge for decades.


Orthopaedics and Traumatology: The essential Guide deals with the diagnosis and treatment, surgical and non-surgical, of the most common disorders and lesions of the locomotor system. It is made up of four sections: Basic knowledge, Traumatology of the locomotor system, Orthopaedics in children and Orthopaedics in adults. To make studying easier, the text is interspersed with interludes, key points and more than 500 illustrations. All authors are specific experts in their field.


Diseases and injuries of the locomotor system are common. Among the disorders with the greatest burden of disease are lower back pain (no 3) and other musculoskeletal disorders (no 6). The burden of disease on the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints, muscles and ligaments) will increase with the continued ageing of our global population. However, orthopaedic disorders and injuries can occur not only in the elderly, but at any age. They may cause disability, reduce quality of life and sometimes lead to loss of independence. As a result, the costs to society are high. Fortunately, there is an increasing number of successful treatment options.


In treating orthopaedic and trauma patients, close cooperation and efficient communication is essential between doctors of different medical specialities, between primary and secondary care, and between doctors and paramedics. We expect this book to be very useful in medical and paramedical training.


The complete book is available online, including embedded videos and deep links. In addition, you can test the new competencies and knowledge, using the case reports offered there and there is also a unique set of questions. Relevant background information can also be found per chapter.
