Foreword
I am honored to be invited by Dr. Wright to write the foreword to this precedent-setting textbook. Over the last decade the discipline of orthopaedic surgery has advanced primarily because of a much more substantial emphasis on evidence-based decision making in clinical practice. Many orthopaedic journals have focused on the quality of study design in the articles that they have published, and have encouraged authors to pursue higher-level studies. Although there are many questions related to musculoskeletal care that, because of the rarity of the disease or the uniqueness of the clinical circumstances, will never be subjected to randomized controlled trials, many important clinical questions in orthopaedics can be addressed with well-designed Level II and III studies. Although the older orthopaedic literature was replete with reports of retrospective case series, and many book chapters and podium presentations simply reflected the opinion of the author or presenter, much more reliable information is now becoming available on many important clinical questions. This textbook presents a rich sampling of this higher-level evidence in a concise and easy-to-read format that is focused on specific areas of clinical interest. The authors have done an outstanding job of culling the critical studies from the literature and providing the reader with useful clinical insights. Dr. Wright and his collaborators are to be congratulated on providing a compendium of clinically important information that will enable us all to advance the quality of the care of our patients based on scientific principles.
