Disorders of the tendon are extremely common, both in sporting and non-sporting groups. These disorders are notoriously difficult to treat, and can present a considerable challenge for specialist physicians. Stanish, Curwin and Mandell are the leading authorities world-wide on disorders of the tendon, and have produced an authoritative book that will provide a practical approach to the assessment and management of tendon disorders. Heavily illustrated, and clearly presented, the book will be an invaluable reference work for sports physicians, musculoskeletal specialists, orthopaedic surgeons, and rheumatologists.
William Stanish is at Dalhousie University. Sandra Curwin is at Husson College.
