A HISTORY OF ORTHOPEDICS portrays the beginning of orthopedic surgery from ancient times to the current era. It follows the gradual development of a specialty from Egypt to the European continent and England and from there to the United States of America. After the discovery of anesthesia and x-rays in the 19th century, a more rapid development of surgical endeavors led to the current situation where arthroscopy could view and treat deranged joint mechanics, and painful arthritic joints could be replaced. Many of the important persons who helped reach this current state are listed with their contributions. Whereas in the 19th century orthopedic surgery was still considered part of general surgery, in the 20th century the two specialties became separated. In addition, there was a struggle between conservative practitioners (the “Strap and Buckle” doctors) and those who felt surgical intervention provided better results.

One phone call hurt Rosalie so much. Bob's boss told her that her brother has to retire because he wasn't as reliable as he used to be, and the company didn't want to be liable for any accident caused by his disability. She couldn't believe that the company whom Bob served for forty years treated him like a thing—he was dispensable. Nonetheless, she agreed that her brother has to retire.
Robert “Bob” Contino was diagnosed with a mild case of “schizophrenia,” or as Dad used to say, “A tip of the iceberg. A tip,” as a young man, and Rosalie knew that taking care of her sixty-one-year-old brother would be a challenge. She noticed her brother's limping, but Bob was more physically sick than she thought. As laboratory tests were administered to him, more and more ailments manifested themselves–some even fatal. For the love of Bob, Rosalie put off many of her plans to take care of him as she has vowed to their deceased parents.
He annoyed her with his sarcasm and impertinence, but looking back at her brother's life and the painful experiences he had to endure, she put everything into its proper perspective and remembered Bob fondly, as she reflects on the lessons.$9.99–$24.99

Scientists continue to enumerate the benefits of plant-based protein diets for the population at large, but only a limited number of people hear and act on this simple message. This circumstance creates a monumental task in any attempts to change the eating habits of a nation. While it is often difficult to pin-point the influence of certain or individual dietary constituents on health, it appears clear that strong carnivorous tendencies tend to breed ill health. The over inclusion of meat protein in the human diet presents excessive intake of saturated fat and cholesterol and it contributes to excess morbidity and mortality from cancer, diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease. While this book highlights the negative effects of excessive animal protein on health, it presents foundations to support the conclusion that a change towards plant protein intake will confer health benefits on the U.S. nation or much of Western society.

Women’s Wellness is a very complex subject that has been summarized in this book, with special emphasis on menopausal disorders and premenstrual syndrome. In this book, there is a reasonably comprehensive account of hormone replacement therapy including discussions about its disadvantages and limitations. A growing number of physicians have opted to use “natural hormones” as a basis of their treatment approach. While menopause is a principal problem for the mature woman, the book describes the male equivalent of this problem, namely the andropause. How the andropausal male interacts with the menopausal female is an important issue that I have termed the omnipause. A major strength in this book is the description of the use of remedies of natural origin for female complaints. This approach is apparent in Dr. Holt’s development of therapeutic “Menoplans.” The book is meant to match today’s changes in treatment paradigms towards more natural forms of treatment for women’s woes.

Rejuvenation 2.0 explains the fundamental basis for how and why our cells get old and die. It begins with vascular inflammatory free radical impingements on capillary- endothelial cell basement membranes that occur as a result of repetitive- maladaptive behaviors and lifestyle choices. The free radical impingements block the back and forth pivot and swing of capillary cell outer membranes and mitochondria. When capillary cell mitochondria don’t swing combustion from energy to nitric oxide, chronic inflammation within end organ interstitial spaces will take the signaling lead to foment disease venues, deterioration of end organ function and set off relentless waves of fatigue and pain. The way back to wellness can be difficult but begins with reducing vascular inflammatory free radial impingements on capillary endothelial cell basement membranes to unlock the capillary cell pivot and swing dance. Its anti-inflammatory pace and stem and ricochet signaling effect to mesenchymal and end organ cells as well as to the interstitial space will follow, as chronic inflammation takes a check mate.

Bio/about the author (max 100 words): Dr. Buckingham is a practicing physician, research scientist, author, patient advocate and consultant of complex chronic medical issues for 40 years. During this span, he has been the last of a medical generation to experience the rarified air of the broadest swath of patient experience; from seeing everyday patients in the office, to consulting on complex cases in the operating and emergency rooms, to managing the sickest of the lot in the intensive care unit. It is from this vast swath of care that repeated patterns of disease and chronic illness emerged and gave impetus to seek out the root cause to these patterns. The fourth book in a series, Rejuvenation 2.0! lays out the case for how chronic inflammation extorts signaling control of the interstitial space by blocking the capillary cell dance, and then utilizing our own immune arsenal to expand disease venues and disrupt end organ function.$5.99–$42.49
