The exam to obtain the Fellowship of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons in Trauma and Orthopaedics (FRCS Tr and Orth) is a tough test of the knowledge of trainees close to the end of their trauma and orthopaedic training. It is considered a most difficult exam, where the candidates are tested on a wide range of orthopaedic problems. Routine reading from journal and textbooks, and accurate preparation in a clinical setting may not be enough to pass the examination. There is very little guidance on the best way to proceed with vivas and clinicals, and confusion over what the best approach in answering vivas and clinical examination is. This book aims to help candidates to prepare for the exam as in a real exam scenario. The book contains common viva and clinical stations at be basis of the FRCS(Tr and Orth).

This book is a practical, step-by-step guide to orthopedic examination and diagnosis. The author explains a systematic classification of clinical findings that has proven very useful in diagnosing orthopedic disorders in daily routine. The approach to examination begins with a checklist covering the complete patient history, including subjective descriptions of complaints. This is followed by a stepwise approach to physical examination of the patient and collection of clinical findings. Photographs and illustrations clearly depict the necessary examination techniques. The main symptoms are then determined from the patient history and clinical findings, leading to a diagnosis. An overview of all relevant orthopedic conditions for each region of the body facilitates differential diagnosis and thereby completes the examination findings. This book will be of particular value for new residents in orthopedics and trauma but will also be useful for the experienced physician as a means of refreshing knowledge or as a reference.
