  • I got the Tarascon Pocket Orthopaedica about a year ago as a gift, and I have really gotten a lot out of it. It's filled with very useful information, and it'll save your neck on a daily basis, at least. Ever since I got it, many of the other residents in my hospital have been buying it, and the consensus is that it can make your life a whole lot easier.  It's a tool no ortho resident will want to go without (and probably many attendings, as well).

    -Pedro Jorba Elguero


  • A wealth of information in a small package! Whether you are an Orthopaedic resident or allied health member, you will benefit from this handy reference.



  • My orthopaedic rotation was only 5 weeks long (PA Student), nonetheless, the Tarascon Pocket Orhopaedica was invaluable to me. It was in my lab coat as long as I was wearing it. I just love the way it puts it all together concisely and in an organized manner.

    -A. Schwartz


  • The Tarascon Pocket Orthopaedica is a book that you can carry everywhere. It's very complete for a pocket book.  I recommend it.

    -Catalina Larrain Birrell


  • I'm an EM Resident on my Ortho rotation now.  I carry one book, this little gem. They've condensed the most important anatomy, landmarks, exam findings, etc. into a book I carry all the time in my scrub top.
