Extract

Foot and Ankle is the first of a series entitled Orthopaedic Surgery Essentials. The editors of this series, Dr. Paul Tornetta, III and Dr. Thomas A. Einhorn, have a wonderful vision for this compendium of clinical orthopaedics: "to create a series at the basic level that residents could read completely during a subspecialty rotation." The logic is compelling and the task is daunting because, as anyone in a multi-tiered educational system knows, it is a challenge to determine the correct level of discussion for residents, and it is even more difficult to decide how to compensate for the differences between rotations among the 159 orthopaedic residencies in the United States.
