Written by two eminent orthopedic surgeons, the book addresses

The clarity of the artwork that made the previous editions of this book so helpful has been maintained. Each of the chapters opens with a series of photographs illustrating the part of the body that will be examined in detail, with page references to where specific injuries are discussed. The authors also point out relevant anatomical features in MRI and CT images to better explain how to interpret them. A chapter on rehabilitative exercises and protocols also contains helpful diagrams.
