Reviews

"The fifth edition of Rehabilitation of the Hand and Upper Extremity has something for everyone. Therapists likely will find this book an indispensable reference source that will guide and inform them in treating problems from the shoulder to the fingertip. Residents and fellows who have an interest in upper-extremity conditions will find that many of the chapters in this book fall into the "must-read" category. Even seasoned practitioners will find new and useful information concerning common clinical problems as well as clearly written and thorough reviews of topics not otherwise readily available." — Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, review of 5th edition.

"The purpose is to provide up-to-date information correlating hand and upper extremity therapy with surgery through the "synergy" of a group of truly expert editors and authors. This book is the bible of all aspects of hand rehabilitation.This is an essential for the library of therapists and surgeons treating the hand and the upper extremity." - Samuel Chmell, MD, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine
