Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This 165-page book is an efficient and amazingly thorough, current-concepts overview of patellofemoral problems in athletes that covers the anatomy to arthroplasty.
Purpose: According to the editors, the goal is to provide a comprehensive guide to the treatment of patellofemoral disorders that can serve as a one-stop guide. This is a wonderful reference that mixes new presentations and concepts with classic concepts and fundamentals.
Audience: This book targets a broad range of orthopedic surgeons, ranging from those in training to those established in practice who commonly or rarely perform patellofemoral surgery.
Features: This is a concise and efficient reference. The editors have brought together an impressive collection of contributors, such as LaPrade and LaPrade, who present remarkable anatomic images in their chapter on anatomy; Brian Cole, a highly respected expert on cartilage restoration; Jenny McConnell, the world leader on conservative options; and Min Kocher, one of the country's leading experts on knee problems in the skeletally immature; among many others. And, who else would you consult to learn about tibial tubercle osteotomies other than John Fulkerson? The truly impressive collection of authors is what makes this book a worthy addition to the literature and a surgeon's personal library.
Assessment: This book presents the most up-to-date overview of patellofemoral problems currently available. It is efficient, comprehensive, and a great addition to your library.
