Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book is designed to serve as a reference on shoulder injuries in athletes. It encompasses topics from general shoulder injuries and examination to sports-specific injuries and rehabilitation.
Purpose: The author's goal in writing this book is to provide a comprehensive textbook addressing not only sports-related shoulder disorders but also those occurring in the active orthopedic patient. In addition, its purpose is to stimulate interest, provoke thought, inspire additional research, and enhance the care of shoulder patients in the future.
Audience: The book is aimed at clinicians, physicians, therapists, athletic trainers, and others involved in caring for patients with shoulder injuries. Dr. Andrews is world renowned and well respected in his treatment of athletes in many aspects of sports medicine.
Features: This attractive book is supported by many figures, tables, and references that serve to enhance the overall presentation of the topic. The chapters on rehabilitation are particularly extensive and helpful.
Assessment: This is an excellent reference for the physician, therapist, or trainer who cares for athletes who may suffer shoulder injuries. Dr. Andrews is preeminent in the field of sports medicine with special expertise in shoulder injuries. Kevin Wilk provides a professional approach and background to rehabilitate the athlete's shoulder both surgically and conservatively. I believe this is an excellent book for the individual or for a library as a reference. I am sure my well-worn copy will sit proudly in my bookcase.
