About the Authors
  • Orthopaedic surgeons require not only an understanding of anatomy and clinical sciences, and competence in surgical skills, but also a strong foundation in biomechanics. The application of biomechanics plays an increasing role in modern orthopaedics; for example, correct decisions about the mode of treatment and choice of implants are just as important as operating precisely to reach a specific anatomical landmark. This book simplifies the core principles in orthopaedic biomechanics, giving readers the solid grounding they need to flourish in the specialty. Each topic is covered in a discrete, double-page spread, featuring concise text accompanied by illustrations or tables to give readers a solid understanding of the concepts discussed. This is a must-read guide for orthopaedic trainees at every level, and will be valuable for biomechanical researchers and other professionals in the field.

    • Covers all of the major biomechanical principles relevant in orthopaedics, giving readers a good appreciation of the breadth and depth of the topic
    • Each concept is explained in a discrete double-page spread, allowing readers to easily refer to a particular principle where they require more information
    • Highly illustrated throughout to ensure that the content is engaging and clear to readers of all levels of experience
