Purchased as a personal reference, and as a visual aid in explaining things to patients who have questions about their problems. Just received the book early this morning, and began going through it. This book is excellent. I really like the fact that this is about orthopedics and only orthopedics. Previously I had used a set of the Netter flash cards for this purpose, but a colleague showed me this, and it was much better for our purposes. Unlike the flash cards, this is a handy "all in one" reference, and it is not cluttered up with information unrelated to my area of practice. Also, I can drop it in the pocket of my lab coat if I want to take it along. No cards to fumble through or misplace. If you are working in orthopedics, or planning to do so, I would recommend this book without reservation.
Them are some impressive bones...

Like most people, I picked this one up during the 4th year of medical school to help me with orthopaedic rotations. After using netter's atlas extensively during the 1st year of medical school, I was a little concerned that the book would be filled with too many points that didn't relate to orthopaedics, even with the word "concise" in its title. I was pleasantly surprised, however, to find that the information in this book had very little superfluous information. In additional to pointing out relevant anatomy, the book did a fantastic job giving tid-bits of information about various orthopaedic conditions that are commonly encountered. Don't get me wrong, you would by no means be an expert on a topic after glancing at the clinical cliff notes of this book, but you at least understand the pathology and treatment behind certain conditions. Another helpful aspect of this book included tables that very clearly spelled out different muscles and their innervations. This came in handy... read more
Good Orthopedic Reference

Good book for medical students and residents wanting a good source for orthopedic anatomy. This edition has more pictures of surgical approaches compared to the old edition. You know what you are getting with Netter and this is another good book. Small and fairly easy to carry around. A little big for a lab coat pocket, but can be done.
