Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book does a remarkable job of covering the controversies in treating shoulder instability in a comprehensive and contemporary manner by bringing together a truly all-star group of contributors.
Purpose: It provides current information on topics ranging from pathophysiology to specific surgical techniques and rehabilitation. The goal is not only to bring the reader up to date, but also to provide the perspectives of elite experts in the field.
Audience: It is clear the book targets orthopedic surgeons who perform shoulder surgeries, including generalists, shoulder specialists, and sports medicine specialists. The book will be well received by orthopedic residents and fellows in training, as it gives them the opportunity to learn from key experts in the field. Indeed the list of contributors is truly impressive and crosses generations from the hot current leaders and recognized experts, including such names as Warner, Hawkins, Boileau, Lafosse, Kuhn, Warren, Abrams, Rodeo, O'Brien, Romeo, Savoie, and Walch. The book is almost a must buy simply because of these authors.
Features: The lead editors were selective in recruiting contributors to write chapters in areas in which they are well recognized as experts. Key sections cover basic principles, anterior instability, posterior instability, combined instability, followed by instability concerns in unique populations such as athletes, postarthroplasty, and children. Chapters are well written and accompanied by high quality images. The online component allows access to the text when the book is unavailable. By far the most impressive part of the book is the list of contributors.
Assessment: This is an impressive book that brings us up to date in every aspect of shoulder instability. I would recommend this book to every resident and fellow as an efficient way to not only understand the broad gamut of shoulder instability, but also to learn from the expertise of a wonderful collection of leaders in the field.
