Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Edward Abraham, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is the seventh edition of a book that addresses all aspects of the management of diabetic patients with lower extremity complications.
Purpose: The purpose is to continue to update and improve the art and science of the pathophysiology, prevention, and care of the diabetic foot.
Audience: The main audiences are active general orthopedists, foot and ankle specialists, podiatrists, primary care physicians, peripheral vascular surgeons, physiatrists, and trial lawyers. The editors, John H. Bowker, MD, from the University of Miami, and Michael A. Pfeifer, MD, from Johnson & Johnson, are supported by 56 contributors.
Features: "This reorganized edition has six sections and two appendixes. The book opens with several topics such as the biomechanics of the diabetic foot, skin manifestations, epidemiology and economic impact, foot ulcers, and amputations. Evaluation techniques such as classification, imaging, and noninvasive vascular testing are discussed in separate chapters. The important area of nonsurgical care is also covered separately. Wound healing modalities are discussed in detail. The surgical management discussion ranges from ulcer debridement to amputations. The authors recognize the importance of a team approach to the patient with a diabetic foot by presenting several chapters on the topic. A diagnostic and procedural coding chapter helps medical professionals with reimbursement issue and a chapter on medical-legal aspects of diabetic foot problems has been expanded. The information is well supported with color photos and illustrations and the references at the end of each chapter are extensive and relevant. "
Assessment: This is the most authoritative book on the diabetic foot in print. It covers all aspects of managing the diabetic foot. Since the first edition some 34 years ago, the authors have remained true to their purpose of helping diabetic patients prevent foot problems and minimizing the morbidity associated with progressive foot ulcers and Charcot foot. I very highly recommend this book to all medical practitioners caring for patients with diabetic foot disorders.

REVIEW OF THE LAST EDITION

"This book belongs in the library of every practitioner who treats diabetic foot disorders. It will be a valuable resource for both generalists and specialists." — JBJS

REVIEW OF THE CURRENT EDITION
"Readers will quickly note that the writing of this text is impressive: An incisive style (together with sharp editing and the inclusion of effective illustrations) coalesce to create a manual meant to aid in the direct care of patients (this multi-layered reference extending to a vast audience that includes orthopedists, endocrinologists, vascular surgeons, wound care specialists, podiatrists and home-health nurses)." -The Electric Review, August 2008
