These pages contain a lot of medical information and pictures that may be unpleasant or offencive to members of the public without a background in medicine.
This "Book of Procedures" is ment as an internal tool for the surgeons in the department. We also hope it will be of interest to the orthopaedic community in Norway in general. We will try to answer e-mail from medical colleagues as far as possible, but other than this we do not have the capacity to answer e-mail.
This is in no way a complete textbook and relevant literature must be consulted in each case.
The pages are not ment as information for patients and their families and any information collected from these pages should be read through with a physician.
We regret that some of the chapters are under revision and are not yet ready or are outdated. We are continuously trying to improve these pages. Please send us comments or criticism.
