Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: Many books on sports injuries fail to address the specifics of return to play. This unique book presents return to play guidelines for every orthopedic and primary care sports issue. A concise review of presentation, examination, and technique is followed by a brief overview of expected outcomes and return to play decisions.
Purpose: The lead editor, Mark Miller, credits coeditor Jeff Konin, a leader in the field of athletic training, for the book's concept: a standalone resource that can be used by certified athletic trainers, physical therapists, orthopedic healthcare professionals, primary care providers, team physicians, and patients to understand problems, procedures, and the expected return to play. This is a unique approach and the book fills a specific need for athletic trainers, therapists, and patients. It also fills a gap in the knowledge of orthopedic professionals about primary care issues and of primary care physicians about orthopedic procedures. All of these readers will find significant value in this book.
Audience: In addition to practicing professionals, students and residents in training will find this an efficient review of and approach to athletic medicine management. Mark Miller has long been recognized as one of the key leaders in orthopedic sports medicine education. He has recruited contributors primarily from his colleagues at the University of Virginia.
Features: "Each section is an efficiently written sequence of diagnosis, procedure, rehabilitation, expected outcome, return to play, and selected references, with wonderfully relevant figures. One of Dr. Miller's goals was to ensure that each topic was accompanied by high-quality illustrations, and he has succeeded. Two-thirds of the book focuses on musculoskeletal procedures. The final chapter is dedicated to primary care issues and accounts for the remaining one-third of the book. "
Assessment: This unique offering will admirably serve the needs of athletic trainers, sports physical therapists, and primary care and orthopedic specialists. As an orthopedic surgeon, I found particular value in the efficient presentation of the primary care issues. This is a wonderful addition to the literature and a worthy addition to both personal and institutional libraries. All team physicians should gift this book to their training room staff.
