|Since the term was first introduced in 1991, evidence-based medicine (EBM) has shaped the face of medical research as we know it. EBM is the marriage of three key elements: the best available evidence on the benefits and risks of various patient management strategies, a health care professional’s clinical expertise, and the patient’s experiences, preferences, and values. EBM should serve as an indispensable tool in every health care professional and trainee’s clinical decision making toolkit. Evidence-based orthopedics (EBO) is one of the burgeoning fields that evolved out of EBM and is the focus of the recently published Evidence-Based Orthopedics. This book serves as a definitive guide to evidence-based orthopaedic practice today and equips orthopaedic surgeon and trainees with the knowledge needed to effectively practice EBO in their everyday practice. It outlines the necessary steps in addressing the specific key problems in orthopaedics; through searching and critically evaluating the literature, highlighting the landmark studies examining the problem, and learning how to implement this evidence into patients’ care. Each chapter starts with a case scenario depicting a common problem within the realm of orthopaedics and concludes with a concise summary of the current recommendations for management of the particular patient. Evidence-Based Orthopedics is the first and only comprehensive EBO text in publication.Undoubtedly, providing optimal patient care is a clinician’s primary objective and is contingent on keeping pace with the ever-changing clinical body of research. Evidence-Based Orthopedics is an essential resource that enables orthopaedic surgeons and trainees to locate, appraise, and apply the very latest evidence, ultimately achieving this goal.
