The orthopaedic clinic is a website conceptualized to
bridge the gap between the exhaustiveness of the academic textbooks and the realities of clinical practice. The website
contains a step by step approach to the diagnosis of some of the most commonly seen orthopaedic cases, providing in an
outline format the description of diagnostic approach, clinical features, differential diagnosis and approapriate radiological workup.
At the same time it also highlights various clinical paths to reach the most appropriate diagnosis, decide on management
and asess progonosis of a given case.
The website is a melange of paediatric, trauma,
cold, degnerative and regional orthopaedic topics. It intends to provide a fast but accurate guidelines on clinical
diagnosis and managements for medical students, interns, physiotherapist, residents and orthopaedic practitioners.The website
has been perspicasious enough to anticipate the need of exam going students and an attempt has been made to focus on some
commonly asked aspects of a given case that will help students to logistically proceed from various clinical
clues and radiological evidence to an effective diagnosis and an excellent case presentation.The orthopaedic
clinic web site is an ideal supplement to larger, more conventional textbooks of orthopaedics that may be needed to be turned
for detailed guidlines.
The website may also be used for by patients who are on wide
wild web rummaging for some sound clinical information on different orthopaedic conditions. We have tried to keep the content
of the web site as simple and lucid as possible, however as this site has been designed for orthopedic students and residents,
certain topics may be a technical jargon for you. Before taking any conclusive decisions based on the website we request the
health care consumers to consult their physicians.
To create this website, we the orthopedic students at KEM hospital Mumbai,
India sat down and thought amongst ourselves: what do we as orthopedic students read and what do we need to excel in
the field ? Thus came the content from a variety of sources: some we have written ourself, some has
been written by our teachers, seniors and friends, and some has been contributed by other Internet users just like you.
you enjoy this website. Be sure to send e-mail to let us know what you think (or to contribute articles or ideas).We
will be updating frequently, so check back often!
