The first book dedicated explicitly to the care of elderly patients with rheumatic diseases, this comprehensive resource is a practical guide for navigating the medical concerns of these complex patients. While patients over 65 years of age comprise roughly 15% of the population, they consume about 50% of rheumatology resources. This book presents current clinical practices with an eye toward achieving economically sustainable models of care. The world's leading authorities have come together to cover the full spectrum of rheumatic diseases, the immune system in aging, and ultrasound evaluation and arthrocentesis. The book also addresses the milieu of co-morbidities that the clinician may encounter with an older patient, as well as the accompanying concerns about multiple pharmacologic therapies and drug interactions. Bringing in experts from a wide array of subspecialties, the editors present the essentials of multidisciplinary care, an approach which is the hallmark of geriatrics and which naturally translates into the field of gerontorheumatology. Designed for primary care physicians and rheumatology consultants, Geriatric Rheumatology is an invaluable guide to caring for this rapidly growing patient population.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This book is unique in its focus on rheumatologic diseases in the geriatric population -no other book in adult rheumatology focuses on a particular population. ... covers a range of topics including myopathies, vasculitides, arthralgias, arthritis, and bone health. It does a good job focusing on geriatric issues related to decreased renal function, fall risk, etc. ... The book is easy to read and meets its stated objectives. ... it may be a good reference for geriatricians." (Hyon Ju Park, Doody's Review Service, February, 2012)

"Present information regarding most of the common rheumatic diseases and their effects and outcomes in elderly persons ... . I would recommend Geriatric Rheumatology to academic and clinical rheumatologists, geriatricians, and rheumatology and geriatrics fellows. This book is an appreciated and useful source of current information, providing insights necessary to better treat the increasing population of geriatric patients with rheumatic disease. It points to the need for more basic and clinical research aimed at therapeutic trials and outcomes research in the elderly population." (Robert J. Quinet, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 307 (7), February, 2012)
