The sixth edition of the Manual of Orthopaedics continues to be designed for use by medical students, house staff interested in the care of orthopaedic patients, and family practice doctors who treat many orthopaedic patients and may then refer them to an orthopaedic surgeon.The first four editions were primarily concerned with orthopaedic trauma. The fifth edition included discussion about nontraumatic conditions, and the sixth edition has incorporated even more topics not related to trauma, so that the current edition of the manual is more balanced in its presentation of orthopaedics. Dr. Swiontkowski continues as the editor, with many of the faculty at the University of Minnesota contributing chapters. Steven D. Stovitz, MD, from the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, reviewed or edited all of the chapters in this edition of the manual.
