Gene Therapy and Tissue Engineering in Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine by Johnny Huard

With the development of improved methods of transferring genes into cells, new treatment options are becoming available in orthopaedics and sports medicine to aid in the healing capacity of musculoskeletal tissues. In this book, current techniques in gene therapy and tissue engineering are described in addition to their potential applications in the management of orthopaedic trauma and sports-related injuries such as muscle injury and ligament, meniscus, or cartilage damage. The book bridges the gap between the clinicians aiming to improve recovery following such injuries, and researchers interested in tissue engineering and gene therapy. This book will be read by physicians and researchers in orthopaedic surgery, sports medicine, and cell and molecular biology.
