Medical Reference Publication

Excerpt
This handbook is part of a series by the World Health Organization on the surgical care of patients at small hospitals that are subject to constraints on resources and where doctors have limited access to specialist services. It describes surgical procedures that can facilitate rehabilitation of selected patients with deformities due to poliomyelitis. The procedures described are those that can be undertaken by the non-specialist medical officer who, nevertheless, has experience, gained under supervision, of all the relevant techniques. Procedures that involve bones require more training and experience; although descriptions of some such techniques are included here, they should be performed at the district hospital only by doctors with wide experience or under the immediate supervision of a specialist. These procedures are marked with an asterisk in the text.
