Archive: PDF Only

The orthopaedic surgeon, by virtue of his special training, may play an important part in the treatment of severely burned patients. Aspects of treatment which deserve his attention are physical therapy, skeletal suspension, and the design and use of special splints; aspects which require his attention are fractures and dislocations, corrective osteotomies, excision of heterotopic bone, and amputations and prosthetic care. Certain of these aspects are presented in modest detail for the purpose of defining to some extent the role of the orthopaedic surgeon in total care of burns.
