Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Experts in the field share the best of their innovative techniques, as well as practical and thoughtful rehabilitation suggestions for a safe and expeditious return to sport for the athlete. The intended target audience for the book is the sports medicine orthopaedist, yet the text is an excellent resource for the physical therapist, physical therapy assistant, or athletic trainer working with an athletic population. ..Vivid anatomic graphics and detailed descriptions bring the reader directly into the operating room.--Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy The diagrams and color photos are of the highest quality...a reliable source...will likely be recognized as one of the leading references...[provides] sufficient detail with clinical pearls and algorithms for management.--Doody's Book Reviews
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Neeru A. Jayanthi, MD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This is an updated summary of surgical approaches to the spectrum of sports-related injuries to the knee. Information is presented regarding simple meniscal repairs to transplantation, articular cartilage procedures, and more complicated fractures as well as more routine ACL reconstruction with different grafts.
Purpose: The authors hope to provide a summary of the techniques of the nation's leaders in sports-related knee surgery to serve as a concise and updated reference for the busy or training orthopedic surgeon. This book is unique in its approach, with the level of detail, spectrum of injuries, and specificity to sports injuries. The authors seem to have satisfied their lofty goals.
Audience: The book is written for practicing orthopedic surgeons with detailed surgical information and tips. General orthopedic surgeons in practice would likely find this a helpful reference and adjunct, particularly if not doing certain types of surgeries often. This is also a good reference for residents/fellows in orthopedic surgery. It may serve as a good reference for primary care sports medicine, or nonoperative musculoskeletal specialists who work closely with sports orthopedists. The authors are well known and respected in their field.
Features: The book includes surgical management of degenerative and traumatic meniscal tears as well as repairs. Surgical management of articular cartilage injuries, patellofemoral disorders, ligament reconstruction with particular emphasis on graft selection are also covered. Sports-specific fractures such as tibial plateau tibial spine are also covered as well as surgical repair of the ruptured extensor mechanism. Postoperative rehabilitation is covered in more detail than in typical surgical texts. The diagrams and color photos are of the highest quality. The detail and specificity for each surgical topic makes the book a reliable source for the practicing surgeon. The focus of the book is primarily surgical; there is brief mention of nonoperative approaches as a result.
Assessment: This book will likely be recognized as one of the leading references on sports-related knee injuries requiring surgical intervention. The authors have assembled leaders in the field of sports-related knee surgery and provide sufficient detail with clinical pearls and algorithms for management that can be immediately applied by the practicing physician. The book is still readable for nonsurgeons and those training in the field of orthopedic surgery.
