Orthopaedic Infections

Abstract

Joint infections and osteomyelitis present complex challenges of diagnosis and management that require a multidisciplinary treatment approach. These infectious conditions are increasing, particularly because patients with prosthetic joints and spinal hardware are living longer. The costs associated with orthopaedic infections are substantial and increasing. Efforts to prevent infections and provide adequate treatment are necessary to control costs, improve patient functionality, and reduce disability.
