This book provides comprehensive, pertinent information about sports medicine so that the busy clinician can find it accessible and practical. Medical students, residents, and fellows will find the book useful for providing an accessible overview of the most salient points in the field of sports medicine.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas J Duhig, M.D.(Methodist Sports Medicine Center)
Description: This book will serve as quick reference for non-sports medicine physicians and medical residents. The succinct presentation of the topics makes the book a good addition to an office library for quick reference.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an accessible overview of many sports medicine issues encountered by clinicians who do not have formal training in sports specific pathology. This is certainly a worthy quick reference guide.
Audience: The book is written for clinicians other than those with formal training in sports medicine, which would include physicians who provide some degree of care to athletes. The authors did well keeping the information succinct and interesting.
Features: This is a very general overview of many topics in sports medicine that may be encountered by the non-sports medicine physician. This quick reference may be helpful to medical residents, medical students, and clinicians with an active patient base. A more illustrative approach to injury, including x-ray, CT, and MRI findings, would be a valuable addition to the book.
Assessment: The authors do a fine job of what they set out to do, creating a succinct quick reference for clinicians whose patient base may include athletes.
