With their rapid evolution, both the development of recombinant proteins and the application of gene therapy techniques promise to revolutionize the treatment of bone and cartilage repair. In Bone Regeneration and Repair: Biology and Clinical Applications, a panel of leading orthopedic and craniofacial surgeons and researchers comprehensively reviews the biology of bone formation and repair, the basic science of autologous bone graft, allograft, bone substitutes, and growth factors, and explores their clinical application in patients with bone repair problems.
Authoritative and state-of-the-art, Bone Regeneration and Repair: Biology and Clinical Applications will not only stimulate investigators to pursue a deeper understanding of how best to harness the body's inherent regenerative capability, but also greatly enhance the day-to-day care of patients.
