Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In the United States, arthritis is the leading cause of disability, resulting in over 350,000 joint replacements annually. Orthopedist S. David Stulberg and rehabilitation physician Victoria Brander (both of Northwestern Memorial Hosp. Rehabilitation Inst. in Chicago), along with patient Allen (a lawyer), have collaborated on this comprehensive patient handbook, which discusses the basics of arthritis, alternative therapies, joint replacement, and the frontiers of research. The book also reflects the change in thinking regarding the level of physical activity advised for arthritis patients. More importantly, it fills a gap in the literature by outlining a step-by-step process from preparing for surgery through recovery. The book is well organized and clearly written, with numerous black-and-white illustrations. Exercises are easy to follow, and the authors make the requisite caveat to consult a therapist. Following the medical information, Allen presents his own perspecive and experience and addresses aspects of surgery and recovery sometimes minimized by professionals. Recommended as an inexpensive addition to healthcare collections targeting patient education needs surrounding arthritis or joint replacement surgery.--Lisa McCormick, Jewish Hosp. Lib., Cincinnati

    For an active person wanting to live life fully!

    As a 50 year old used to exercising, being told that I had to have a hip replacement came as a surprise (understatement of course). At that point I knew absolutely nothing about hip replacements, and wanted to get back to my previous level of fitness. I've had my surgery and came back to tell you that I don't know what I would have done without this book! It's written by an MD specializing in surgeries for 'younger' people, an MD specializing in rehab and a lawyer who has had 3 hip replacement surgeries and now plays tennis! It was crucial that I had read this book before my first visit to the surgeon. This book allows you to make the most out of what may be your only visit to the surgeon. The authors spend a lot of time on the decision to operate, as well as the operation itself and, especially important, how to rehab afterwards. Great exercises. Great patient perspective. A truly awesome book.
