Surgical Techniques in Sports Medicine

JAMA. 2008;300(3):334-335. doi:10.1001/jama.300.3.334

Surgical Techniques in Sports Medicine provides readers with an overview of surgical techniques used in the treatment of the most common sports injuries. The book is a surgical guide to established, up-to-date sports medicine procedures and provides more than simple operative instructions. The authors remain concise but provide detail on the history of each technique, indications and contraindications, a step-by-step description of each procedure, pitfalls and alternatives, rehabilitation and return to activities, outcomes, and future directions, along with an extensive bibliography. The description of surgical procedure is the highlight of each chapter and allows the casual reader to understand and better appreciate these surgical protocols. The sports medicine surgeon can obtain a description detailed enough to understand the authors' perspectives and insight.
