There have been great strides in treating foot and ankle problems over the past 15 years. It is also an area in which two groups vie for patients, orthopaedic surgeons and podiatrists. Among the most difficult patients to treat are those with sports injuries. This will be a comprehensive but practical book on the treatment of foot and ankle sports injuries. The authors will be from the top programs in the United States: Hospital for Special Surgery and the Kerlan Jobe Clinic in California. Most contributors will be orthopaedic surgeons, but there will be some podiatrists including Dr. Positano and physiatrists. They will also have contributions from physical therapists and athletic trainers who are involved in treating players from major sports teams, like the Mets and Giants.
