"This is a dynamic, well-written, and well-edited book in what probably is the most exciting and rapidly developing area of orthopedic surgery -- cartilage restoration. I read it through cover to cover and then I read it again. To describe the book, I have to again quote George Bentley, one of the most revered living orthopedic surgeons in the worl: "This outstanding book is a scientific treatise and stepwise surgical guide as well as a visionary surgeon's view of this most exciting of musculoskeletal developments of the 21st century. It is beautifully presented and illustrated and a pleasure to read. . . a masterpiece." It cannot be stated any better. This book is incomparable. It is truly a revolutionary masterpiece in this new and rapidly growing field. Start any chapter and you are going to want to keep reading. The bibliography and index won't let you down, either." - Samuel J. Chmell, MD(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine) Excerpts from Doody's review service Rating - 5 Stars!
