Excerpt from Notes on Military Orthop?dics

This little work is published in the hope that it may perhaps be of some service to surgeons engaged in military work. It is an attempt to formulate rules for the application of orthop?dic principles to the treatment of injuries received in war.

The foresight of the War Office and the sympathetic generosity of the British Red Cross Society have enabled us to open Orthop?dic Centres in many of the principal towns of the British Isles, and to equip them so that the surgeon may have at his disposal every facility likely to develop and perfect treatment.

The "curative workshops" started in each centre owe their existence and success to the initiative and inspiring enthusiasm of King Manuel, who has acted as representative of the British Red Cross Society. These workshops have already proved to be of very real value, and are the latest but not least important advance in the orthop?dic treatment of wounded men suffering from physical disabilities of their limbs.

By the time a soldier has passed through various phases of recovery from septic wounds in several different hospitals and is finally transferred to an Orthop?dic Centre for treatment to correct deformity and restore the use of injured joints and muscles, his spirit is often broken. The shock of injury, frequently in itself severe, followed in succession by a long period of suppuration, and then by a wearisome convalescence, during which he receives treatment by massage or electricity, or by monotonous movement with mechanical apparatus of the Zander type, too often leaves him discontented with hospital life, its monotonous round of routine, and its long periods of idleness.
