Abstract

Orthopædics is the largest speciality in surgery. If we include injuries, my surveys have shown that over 60% of the surgical in-patients are orthopædic patients and 35% or more of the out-patients in general clinics. As orthopædic patients attend more frequently and for longer periods than, for example, patients treated for appendicitis or for hernia, it will be seen that the major part of a surgeon's time is spent in orthopædic work. © 1957, Australian Physiotherapy Association.
