By Murray J. Goodman, MD

In the narrow world of our day-to-day practice, orthopaedic surgeons often think of risk management strictly in terms of avoiding exposure to medical liability lawsuits.

Marcinko, MD, has assembled a cadre of experts who address the broader issue of risk management.

This book examines the many important risks that we as physicians face daily in the practice of medicine.

Dr. Marcinko has written a book that provides an initial reference point for these diverse issues.
