Gopalan’s Evidence Based Orthopaedic Principles PDF
FOREWORD & MESSAGE- CHAIRMAN EDUCATION SICOT It is my good fortune to write this foreword for Dr. Hitesh Gopalan’s new edition of Orthopaedic Principles. I wrote the foreword to Orthopaedic Principles A Review 5 years ago. In the meantime, Hitesh has been working hard to make this book one of the most valuable resource for postgraduates and exam going young surgeons, fellows and practicing surgeons. The thrust of this edition of Evidence Based Orthopaedic Principles has been ‘evidence based orthopaedics’ in keeping with the demands of the modern times. The chapters are very well structured to cover anatomy and biomechanics, indications and management principles and details. They talk of pitfalls, complications and special situations, evidence base for management and new research. As such, each chapter provides a comprehensive approach and coverage of the topic which would be very useful to the target audience. Orthopaedics and trauma has been covered very widely and this will be of great use to the young surgeon. Whilst congratulating Hitesh and his team, I wish to compliment them for this mammoth work. I am sure that Evidence Based Orthopaedic Principles will be a valuable addition to individual and institutional libraries. Dr. Ashok N.
