Project Description

Arthritis of the Hip & Knee

by Ronald J. Allen, S. David Stulberg, & Victoria Anne Brander

A comprehensive easy-to-understand handbook that empowers patients by allowing them to take control of their treatment and recovery process.

This book highlights the recent substantial advances made in the treatment of osteoarthritis of the hip and knee. It encourages patients to take charge of their situation: to actively participate in the decision-making about their treatment and to become and stay physically active.

The book is the collaborative effort of three people—a patient, an orthopedic surgeon, and a physiatrist—each contributing valuable insight into the treatment of osteoarthritis and the rehabilitation process.
