Two primers on the diagnosis and treatment of skeletal- and joint-pain syndromes. Browne's book, as indicated by its title, is oriented to the surgical approach but offers clear diagnostic approaches to the most frequent problem responsible for back, hip, knee, and other joint-pain syndromes. Cailliet's book, limited to shoulder syndrome, reviews the pertinent anatomy and then takes up musculoskeletal pain, cuff tear, "frozen shoulder," referred pain (root and nerve, sympathetic, and visceral), pain from trauma, biceps-tendon lesions, and the problems of hemiplegia. Both are well illustrated with simple, clear diagrams.
