About this book


The repair of musculoskeletal tissue is a vital concern of all surgical specialties, orthopedics and related disciplines. Written by recognized experts in their field, Musculoskeletal Tissue Regeneration: Biological Materials and Methods aims to provide both basic and advanced knowledge of the newer methodologies being developed and introduced to the clinical arena. On the cusp of a revolution, musculoskeletal repair is based on new tools that have recently become available or are about to emerge into clinical practice. By their very nature, these tools require an interdisciplinary approach, utilizing teams comprised of surgeons, engineers, and scientists in collaboration between industry and academia. A valuable resource for researchers, developers, and clinicians, Musculoskeletal Tissue Regeneration: Biological Materials and Methods presents a foundation to propel the technology and integration of the current state of knowledge into the twenty-first century.
