October 1997 AAOS Report

New book published on orthopaedic care

The Academy has published Essentials of Musculoskeletal Care-a new book primarily written for nonorthopaedic physicians and other musculoskeletal caregivers. Edited by Robert K. Snider, MD, it is the first medical textbook developed by the Academy geared toward educating primary care practitioners about orthopaedic care. It contains brief clinical descriptions and treatment explanations of more than 300 commonly-seen musculoskeletal conditions. The American Academy of Pediatrics reviewed the new book and endorsed it as a resource for its members. The book also will be promoted in the American Medical Association's product catalog; trade show exhibits; and direct mail pieces to primary care physicians. It costs $85 for members; $75 for residents; and $100 for nonmembers, and can be ordered by contacting the Academy's customer service department at (800) 626-6726.
