Now available in a completely updated second edition, One Hundred Orthopedic Conditions Every Doctor Should Understand is bound to delight and instruct a new generation of medical students, residents, orthopedic practitioners, and allied health care professionals.
This fun-to-read, informative book encompasses 62 chapters that address common conditions that constitute most of the musculoskeletal problems doctors regularly encounter. Less common conditions are also discussed because they can be particularly devastating if not promptly diagnosed and treated. Throughout, orthopedic principles are woven into the fabric of these updated case studies.
The book is arranged to stimulate your curiosity and engage you in the adventure of investigating each patient with an unknown diagnosis. Your mission is to work through the case studies to determine the probable causes and the best courses of treatment. For reference and review, the index offers a conventional organization of topics and key words.

"The primary value of this book is that it can be used by instructors of orthopaedic surgery to teach medical students. The case studies are presented in a language and format that will appeal to students and will stimulate their interest and curiousity."
―The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (Review of First Edition)
"The title of this book...should also have included ‘and every physical therapist, student, and practitioner.’ It offers an introduction to orthopaedics with a creative, educational approach. ...Although this book would be practical as a reference, I also feel it is one of the best sources of clinical material and self-assessment tools on the market."
―Physical Therapy: Journal of the American Physical Therapy Association (Review of First Edition)
"Common conditions as well as less common ones that may be devastating to life and limb are presented as short stories, letters, or poems. This highly readable book will appeal to medical students, residents, orthopedists, and allied health professionals."
―The Journal of Musculoskeletal Medicine (Review of First Edition)
"Dr. Meals and his gaggle of 26 medical student co-authors have produced a 310-page paperback text that is not only fun to read, but instructive as well. All in all, this combination of Dr. Seuss and O’Henry on musculoskeletal conditions makes the introduction to orthopaedics entertaining and lively instead of dull and tedious. As such, its value to unsophisticated osteophiles (medical students, et.al.) should be boundless."
