Musculoskeletal Surgery – formerly La Chirurgia degli Organi di Movimento, founded in 1917 at the Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli – is a peer-reviewed journal published three times a year. The Journal provides up-to-date information for clinicians and scientists through the publication of original papers and reviews dealing with the pathogenesis and treatment of orthopaedic conditions.
At a time when the number of specialty journals is increasing, Musculoskeletal Surgery will continue to fulfil its special role as a general orthopaedic journal. The aim, reflecting the vision of the founder, Prof. Vittorio Putti, is to contribute to orthopaedic knowledge through solid scientific publications that help orthopaedic surgeons in their current practice.
The Journal is international in both scope and readership, as reflected by its editorial team and contributors, who include experts from around the globe. The Journal is indexed in PubMed/MEDLINE and is available in electronic format at www.springerlink.com.
