Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This 1,300 page compendium is a well-organized, efficient, and well-done collection of instructions for patients based on their specific sports medicine diagnosis. Arranged alphabetically, it serves as an encyclopedia of patient education and instructions on over 400 specific diagnoses.
Purpose: It is clear that the authors believe that the best treatment of patients includes making sure they have a thorough understanding of the problem. With this in mind, they have created a wonderful series of handouts on the myriad of diagnoses commonly seen in a sports medicine practice. You need only look up the diagnosis, then copy the pages for your patient.
Audience: While the ultimate audience is sports medicine patients, the targeted audience is sports medicine professionals who wish to have easy access to an up-to-date collection of instructions for patients. The authors bring many years of clinical and educational experience to this great collection. I have seen Dr. Safran and Dr. Stone speak and they are wonderful educators.
Features: Each of the 400 diagnoses includes a brief discussion of signs and symptoms, causes, risk factors, prevention interventions, medications, etc., followed by a specific outline of diagnosis-targeted rehabilitation with pictures demonstrating the techniques. The wonderful bonus is that the book comes with a CD which allows you to print each handout easily from your computer workstation. My only disappointment is that it did not offer the option to place the entire offering on my website for even easier access for my patients. Perhaps they are saving that option for the future.
Assessment: There are a number of books targeting rehabilitation but surprisingly few are available to assist physicians in educating their patients. Some organizations provide handouts for sale that accomplish this task but none are as comprehensive as this offering. I love this book. I immediately gave it to the staff in my sports medicine center and have already instituted it into my daily practice. It is a great way to keep your patients informed and educated.
