Pediatric Practice: Sports Medicine by Dilip R. Patel
Book DescriptionA treatment-focused guide for sports-related health issues in children and adolescents JAMA REVIEW! "The editors are outstanding, experienced physicians with a great wealth of knowledge as well as practical proficiency in this field. The other contributors are also first-rate authors, and all have done a wonderful job in researching the subjects and writing them up in a way that is easy to read and understand. I firmly believe that Pediatric Practice Sports Medicine will quickly become the favorite of students, residents, and primary care clinicians. It will be embraced because of its ease of use and its valuable, practical contents. I am sure it will find its way to medical libraries throughout the nation or world and to most offices for primary care clinicians. I would recommend this book for anyone dealing with pediatric and adolescent patients, even if that interaction takes place only a few times per year. I think that this will be a must-have reference for pediatricians, family practitioners, student health clinicians, pediatric and family nurse practitioners, and physician assistants and anyone working with children and adolescents." --Journal of the American Medical Association 4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW " The book does an outstanding job of describing the etiology, presentation, evaluation, and treatment of various problems, providing a quick and valuable resource for practitioners...This is a well organized, comprehensive book that will prove useful to any primary care physician who treats younger athletes.
