Summary: Netter's Ortho. Book Review
I would not recommend this book. The book is not very well written and is not the "usual" Netters type book. I was very disappointed with this book.
Summary: Not for Orthopaedists....
This book from Walter Greene is a text which goes throught basic information highlighting many important orthopaedic conditions. Good book for students, primary care doctors, or those in ancillary staff. Very few illustrations provided, and less detail than expected. No approaches provided. Beware, more of a general ortho text than an anatomy reference.
The leader: "atlas quality reference" is a little misleading.
