This hardback A4 book is a must for all Trauma & Orthopaedic trainees working towards their final FRCS (Trauma & Orthopaedic) Examination.

This Basic Science book is co-authored by respected experts in their fields who regularly contribute to the FRCS (Orth) courses held here at Oswestry. It unifies the underlying principles & applications of current orthopaedic practice. Specifically designed with the trainee in mind providing a guide on the expected standard of knowledge in a concise format, guiding the reader with the help of diagrams, illustrations & suggested references for further reading.

Although termed “basic”, the subject is far from static but rather dynamic and constantly developing. Medicine as a whole is a constantly evolving, ever changing discipline. As orthopaedics increasingly becomes sub-specialised, the basic science platform is also broadening.

The reader will be able to immerse themselves in topics covering skeletal development & structure, Articular cartilage, the growth plate, paediatric inherited neuromuscular disease, skeletal dysplasia, fracture healing, traction, bone grafting, scintigraphy, radiology, osteoarthritis, joint replacement, joint biomechanics, tendon repair & transfer, clinical neurophysiology, statistics, bone & soft tissue tumours, antibacterials, microbiology of working in theatre and some trainee personal
examination experiences with sample questions from the FRCS (Orth) examination.
