Prosthetics and Patient Management: A Comprehensive Clinical Approach is an innovative and unique text, covering both upper and lower extremity prosthetics. All the information clinicians need to manage a range of prosthetic patients, and their disorders is available in this practical and all-inclusive text. Kevin Carroll and Joan E. Edelstein, together with internationally recognized leaders, present a multidisciplinary team approach to the care of a patient with an amputation. ""Prosthetics and Patient Management"" covers practical solutions to everyday problems that clinicians encounter, from early prosthetic management to issues facing the more advanced prosthetic user. The text is broken down into four sections encompassing the range of subjects that confront practitioners, including Early Management; Rehabilitation of Patients with Lower Limb Amputation; Rehabilitation of Patients with Upper Limb Amputations; and Beyond the Basics, which includes special considerations for children and futuristic concepts. ""Prosthetics and Patient Management"" will provide expert guidance for dealing with a wide array of prosthetic patients, and is a must-have for clinicians and students in physical therapy, certified prosthetists, and orthopedists interested in the wide-ranging field of prosthetics and amputation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I feel one of the most helpful aspects of this book was the Appendix. In this section, the authors included a physical therapy intake form, pain questionnaire and physical therapy evaluation form. I found these to be a good starting point for any therapist with little experience evaluating and treating this patient population.
Kristen Kwiatkowski-Digwood, ADVANCE for Physical Therapists & PT Assistants"
If there is a display of publications related to rehabilitation, you will be drawn by the montage cover to the new Carroll/Edelstein book. With photographs of five patients (three of them children) you probably will order it on the spot. . . Excellent photographs as well as references."

"This book fulfils its aim of providing a comprehensive approach to prosthetics and patient management.....It is well laid out and progresses logically..... This would be useful in a physiotherapy department where patients are treated following amputation."
