ORTHOPEDICS SEEKING A BALANCE -Sarmiento
The book, Orthopedics: Seeking a Balance, presents a balance between surgical and the nonsurgical approaches to orthopedic care. It provides the readers the technical solutions in daily dealings with musculoskeletal problems. In orthopedic surgery, this is to a great extent due to the fact that an absolute technical approach to musculoskeletal disease is displacing important biological considerations. This book is primarily an informal text reflecting author’s personal views on a number of issues. The book is divided into three sections. The first section ‘General Trauma and Reconstructive Hip Surgery’ mainly covers hips and various fractures and dislocations. In the second section ‘Miscellaneous’, the author addresses a variety of topics of philosophical or political nature. The third section ‘Addenda’ contains a few addresses delivered and written dealing on topics that shed light into overall author’s personal attitudes toward a changing discipline.
