From the reviews:

“The purpose is to provide the best recommendations for management of an individual orthopedic injury using evidence-based methodology. This is a worthy objective, particularly in the area of orthopedic traumatology, and the book fulfills this goal nicely. The audience includes surgeons, fellows, residents, and registrars who care for the patient with orthopedic injuries. … This is a welcome new book in orthopedic traumatology. It uses evidence-based medicine to help arrive at a best course of treatment. … It is recommended for the academic orthopedic library.” (Samuel J. Chmell, Doody’s Review Service, November, 2012)
