Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Pietro Tonino, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This contributed text discusses common sports injuries and their treatment.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a syllabus for orthopedists in sports medicine fellowships.
Audience: The audience is orthopedic fellows in sports medicine and practicing orthopedic surgeons who deal with athletes. Most nonorthopedists will find it to be too technical. The authors are credible sources for the subject matter in this book.
Features: This book contains abundant illustrations that are essential in a book that details the surgical treatment of sports injuries. It is easy to read.
Assessment: The orthopedic treatment of common sports injuries is discussed in this book. It is a good reference guide. Arthroscopic surgery is discussed but not in detail. The book is best described as a review of orthopedic sports medicine.
