Summary

The first edition of this book has become essential reading for those preparing for postgraduate examinations in orthopaedics. Medical students and junior trainees had their own books to use. This is surprising as the same process of examination is used by all groups, the only differences being that the senior trainee should look more polished and should know more special tests. It was this realization that prompted us to come together with our many years’ experience of teaching clinical examination and to rewrite every chapter in a format that was uniform in style and in a sequence that could be used in examination situations or in clinical practice by all. Quick revision will become easier as each chapter ends with a summary of the examination technique. Another unique addition is that the illustrations also follow a sequence for quick visual revision. These illustrations are supplemented by numerous new clinical photographs. It is our hope that we have made this book even more user-friendly and an essential companion through your career in clinical practice.
