The X-Ray of the pelvis
the compartment - cross section
Orthopedics is synonymous with anatomy - ever since medical schools , the orthopods (orthopedic surgeons) would bombard us with never ending questions on anatomy.
Ever since last week, i've had to assist in more than 8 operations - total hip arthroplasty , total knee replacement, posteriro of infusionof T10 - T12, hemiarthroplasty, diagnostic arthroscopy , wound debridements and such.. during my first assistance, i was asked regarding anatomy by my dear specialist..
haha..much to my disay, or to his astonishment, i wasn't able to answer even on basic anatomy..
Thus, i've promised myself to go back and revise my wholly forgotten bones and muscles ..
oh dear..back to the books..
