"This book is valuable because it not only expertly instructs how to improve outcomes for adult hip fracture patients, it also teaches us a philosophy of going beyond our operation to treat the whole patient and even try to prevent future fractures by treating osteoporosis and helping patients avoid falls. For this complete approach, there is no match in the field." - Samuel J. Chmell, MD, Doody's Review Service
