Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gary W. Misamore, MD (Indiana University School of Medicine)
Description: This is a relatively comprehensive text of musculoskeletal disorders of the shoulder.
Purpose: The editors' stated purpose is to provide a comprehensive source for up-to-date information regarding disorders of the shoulder. This worthy purpose does seem to be well met by the topics covered in the book.
Audience: This would be an excellent resource for residents, fellows, and general practitioners. Since much of the book is about surgical procedures, it would be most useful to orthopedic surgeons. However, much of the textbook would also be useful to primary care physicians whose practices involve a significant number of patients with musculoskeletal problems. The contributors are generally well recognized as knowledgeable orthopedic shoulder experts.
Features: Common disorders are very adequately covered in the text. The topics of anatomy, biomechanics, physical examination, and surgical and nonsurgical management are addressed. In addition, a chapter on outcome measures for shoulder problems and a chapter on chronic pain management are included. Each chapter has an excellent reference list. Algorithms for evaluation and treatment are included in many chapters. The illustrations throughout this book are well done, appropriate, and useful.
Assessment: This is an excellent book in which most disorders of the shoulder are covered. It could serve both as a general introduction to shoulder disorders as well as a resource for more advanced learning about complex shoulder problems. The general content of this text is similar to Rockwood and Matsen's The Shoulder, (W.B. Saunders, 1990). Both texts are equally well organized, illustrated, and written and have equally qualified contributors.
