Main description:

Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine will ultimately have a more profound impact than most of us can fully appreciate. The combination of the principles of engineering with advances in the material sciences, and an increased understanding of developmental biology has the potential to influence developments in medicine and biotechnology more than any single advance in these fields during the last several decades. I would first like to applaud the volume editor, Dr. Pietrzak, and the authors for their efforts in bringing together a group of interrelated topics to create a textbook emphasizing the Tissue Engineered generation of musculoskeletal tissue. The authors of this book are all established experts in their respective fields. The publication of a separate volume dedicated to musculoskeletal tissue regeneration as part of a series focusing on orthopedic biology and medicine is a reflection of the tremendous growth of knowledge and ongoing developments that have occurred in this field over the last decade. Musculoskeletal Tissue Regeneration: Biological Materials and Methods is intended to cover the basic fundamentals and early treatment of musculoskeletal disease, tissue loss and wound healing, as well as provide a comprehensive summary of recent advances in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering as they relate to the musculoskeletal system, and should serve as a reference for researchers and graduate students in this discipline.


A comprehensive but succinct reference for the field of musculoskeletal tissue regeneration

Chapters are organized logically to build upon concepts

The pros and cons of competing or alternative technologies are presented objectively

The authors conclude each chapter with an estimate of where the field is headed

Back cover:

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.
