New York/Stuttgart – Articular Cartilage Injury of the Knee, recently published by Thieme, is a comprehensive reference that combines the basic scientific knowledge of articular cartilage with patient-focused diagnosis and treatment options. Articular cartilage injuries of the knee are quite common, affecting up to 1 million patients and accounting for up to 200,000 surgical procedures per year. Because articular cartilage lacks the natural ability to heal, treating cartilage problems poses a unique challenge to orthopedic surgeons. This book emphasizes the importance of bridging the divide between basic science and clinical applications in order to select the best possible treatment when injuries occur.
“Our first goal is to marry basic science with a comprehensive patient-based approach to diagnosis and treatment. It is impossible to appropriately choose current options or apply exciting new developments without a thorough understanding of the basic science of articular cartilage in health and disease. As such, we have engaged basic science experts who also have strong clinical backgrounds to bridge the divide that can limit effective clinical application of current and emerging treatment options.” – From the Author Preface
Orthopedic surgeons specializing in the lower extremity will find this book to be an excellent and extremely current resource that they can consult to guide them in the treatment of patients with articular cartilage injury of the knee.
