This unique book is designed to help today's podiatrist manage an ever-increasing flow of information. The book's editorial team has studied hundreds of publications—mainstream podiatric journals as well as those from related fields—to hand-pick the most significant articles in each subject area from the last year. Each article is expertly condensed in an easy-to-read, standardized format. Accompanying each section is a commentary by one of the journal's section editors, which shows how the information in the article can be applied in practice. Also included are illustrations and key references for further reading.

Podiatric medicine and surgery has seen its body of knowledge increased at a rapid rate in the past several years. The number of conditions that fall into the category of “structures, organs, or systems affecting the foot” expands annually. Podiatric physicians attempting to maintain their knowledge of lower extremity medicine continue to face an increasing number of fields of interest. You need only look at the topics from the articles chosen by our authors this year. The specialty of podiatric medicine grows ever more complex and the lines of division between allopathic, osteopathic, and podiatric medicine are increasingly blurred. Many advocate for a loss of podiatric identity by trading our uniqueness for inclusion in allopathic medical training as a recognized specialty. Others want to keep our special place as a separate but equal branch of the medical profession. The debate may be answered for us by forces outside of academics and practice, when in an attempt to reduce cost, podiatric medicine is either preferred or rejected based on our ability to deliver evidence-based, cost-effective care. We are in a race to produce quality studies that show the significant contribution that podiatric medicine makes to the overall health of our population. Judging from the studies chosen for this yearís collection, we are not allocating our resources or our energies in such a way as to produce the type of data we may need for our very survival.
