Global Orthopedics: caring for musculoskeletal conditions and injuries in austere settings

Investigator: Richard Coughlin, MD

Location(s): United States


The book Global Orthopedics: Caring for Musculoskeletal Conditions and Injuries in Austere Settings was conceived and written to be a unique reference for surgeons working in resource-limited environments. The first sections provide historical background, global public health perspectives of orthopedics, the role of culture, and a broad discussion of clinical topics that orthopedic surgeons rarely deal with in high-resource settings but that affect orthopedic care.
