September 1998 AAOS Report
Essentials marks first anniversary
Essentials of Musculoskeletal Care marks its one year anniversary this
month. Due to its sales success, a CD-ROM package featuring video
animation on selected procedures in the book will be available at the
end of 1998 and the planning stages of a second edition already
are underway. Edited by Robert K. Snider, MD, the book was developed to be a resource guide for 300 of the most commonly seen musculoskeletal conditions. Not only is it one of the Academy's fastest selling textbooks, but many other related medical organizations such as the American Medical Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, American College of Physicians, American College of Emergency Physicians and American Academy of Physician Assistants have included the book in their educational product catalogs. The book costs $85 for Academy members, $75 for resident members and $100 for nonmembers.
