Reviews

Review 1

“This book gives the reader a full view of arthritis. The author has written in this monograph, the A to Z about arthritis. The contents are sufficient, meaning eaders do not have to refer to any other book for osteoarthritis.” - Dr. H. R. Jhunjhunwala, Senior Ortho Consultant, Post Graduate Institute of Medical Science of Bombay Hospital, Mumbai, India, Ex-President of Indian Orthopaedic Association


Review 2

“The book is a well conceived, lucidly written, concise and comprehensive review of osteoarthritis of the hip and knee to provide the pertinent evidence based information to the readers. It covers the pathological basis, role of nutritional supplements, physical therapy to prevent and treat osteoarthritis as well as medical treatment, strategies to induce cartilage regeneration and treatment of advanced arthritis. I can vouch for the fact that this book fills the vacuum in the current available text books to provide a holistic view on osteoarthritis. I congratulate the editor and the authors for their work and wish them success.”
