Orthopaedics for the Newborn and Young Child: A Practical Clinical Guide

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Primary care providers caring for newborns must be able to recognize orthopaedic disorders that affect infants, particularly when these conditions require early treatment or are part of an underlying syndrome. This book provides pediatricians, neonatologists, family medicine physicians and licensed independent practitioners with a useful framework for the diagnosis and management of common pediatric orthopaedic conditions that typically present during infancy. The text begins with an overview of orthopaedic embryology and relevant physical examination techniques. The second section details congenital and developmental conditions affecting the limbs and spine. The third section includes topics related to birth trauma. The final section focuses on orthopaedic manifestations of systemic diseases and syndromes. Each chapter has a consistent, intuitive layout including a brief overview and sections on clinical presentation, evaluation and management, as well as a detailed discussion of the condition being discussed. When relevant, clinical vignettes are included to illustrate practical application of the subject matter. The design of the sections allow providers to easily reference appropriate information in the clinic setting. Written by experts in the field, Orthopaedics for the Newborn and Young Child is a valuable resource for pediatric orthopaedic providers, primary care physicians and other specialists who treat children.
