Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Samuel J. Chmell, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a dynamic, well-written, and well-edited book in what probably is the most exciting and rapidly developing area of orthopedic surgery — cartilage restoration. It has it all, basic science and direct clinical applications, from the laboratory cell culture to the operating theater. I read it through cover to cover and then I read it again.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a practical approach to cartilage repair. Because joint preservation is a developing field, it is often confusing. This book eloquently outlines and illustrates an organized and, as much as possible, an evidence-based approach to rational utilization of surgical technique for cartilage restoration and native joint preservation. This book meets these worthy objectives in a superlative fashion.
Audience: The author aims the book at residents (registrars), fellows, and attending surgeons, but it also is appropriate for research scientists. The author and the two contributors are not only credible authorities, they are at the forefront of the field. George Bentley accurately describes the book in the foreword: "This is a timely and unique book by a world pioneer of autologous cartilage transplantation."
Features: To describe the book, I have to again quote George Bentley, one of the most revered living orthopedic surgeons in the worl: "This outstanding book is a scientific treatise and stepwise surgical guide as well as a visionary surgeon's view of this most exciting of musculoskeletal developments of the 21st century. It is beautifully presented and illustrated and a pleasure to read. . . a masterpiece." It cannot be stated any better.
Assessment: This book is incomparable. It is truly a revolutionary masterpiece in this new and rapidly growing field. Start any chapter and you are going to want to keep reading. The bibliography and index won't let you down, either.
