I picked up this book because I strained my knee, and I knew I was going to need medical treatment for it. What I didn’t know was how my knees work or how I could tell if I really would need surgery. This book has a lot of information about how The knee joints work and how the orthopedics branch of medicine works. I learned that, as with any group, there are heroes and villains.

Great!!! I was scheduled for knee surgery. I thought I would check out some books for post surgery exercise and I came across this book and some others. This book made me think I might not need surgery. Maybe some specific physical therapy might work. I was not sure at all, but I canceled the surgery and 3 years later that knee injury is still gone. I followed some exercises in the book "Heal Your Knees. How to Prevent Knee Surgery & What to Do If You Need It." Now keep in mind the knee is complicated. Many things inside the knee can go wrong, so surgery might be what some people need. However, the book, "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Knee Pain And Surgery" made me realize that you have to give physical therapy a VERYYYY GOODDDD try before you resort to surgery. The knee might take a year or so to heal. I know that is hard to believe when you are in pain. The first time I saw a doctor at the urgent clinic the x-ray tech told me her knee was just recovering from an injury she had a year before, but I just couldn't believe her at the time because I was in pain. That doctor recommended I buy a thin black strap from Walgreens that placed in the right place relieved my pain. I had to wear that for a little more than a year. I also put on ice and hot packs, took Epson salt soaks, rubbed castor oil on it, massaged it, and took joint pills. I highly recommend these two books: 1)WHAT YOUR DOCTOR MAY NOT TELL YOU ABOUT KNEE PAIN AND SURGERY and 2) HEAL YOUR KNEES HOW TO PREVENT KNEE SURGERY & WHAT TO DO IF YOU NEED IT. Good luck to anyone with a knee injury!!!

I thought that this book contained an informative behind the scenes look at the orthopedic world. Although I believe that many are not out to simply get you in surgery, I'm sure there are a good portion that are and this book will give you cues on how to spot a happy cutting surgeon. This book will also awaken you to the fact that the doctor is merely a human being, sometimes making educated guesses into your condition.

I love the author's approach and direct writing style. This book gives some information about virtually any knee problem that can arise. Most likely it will affirm you to wait, try some exercises and see how it feels. It will also give you ideas on questions to ask the doctor, as well as give you a thorough understanding of the anatomy of the knee (as of 2002).

This book should be a must for anyone who is experiencing knee pain and/or is considering having surgery. It is well written and easy for the everyday person to understand. Personally having read the book and recently having has knee surgery I found the book great reading and informative.

This book has a lot of helpful information.Anyone who is having problems with arthritis--knee problems would be well advised to get this book.I found it very helpful and informative.I like the fact that it was written by a doctor---doctors are usually rushed and this answers questions you may not have thought about to ask---do yourself a favor and get this book.

I haven't received this book yet, and would be grateful if you could help me find out what happened to my order!!

Orthopaedic docs come from the ranks are our county's best and brightest. Surely I can count on getting top quality care for my knee, right? That's what I figured, but Dr Grelsamer explains why this ain't necessarily so as only an insider can. (Money, the medial system, tremendous technology changes, and the tricky nature of the knee come into play.)

If you are having any doubts about your course of treatment (especially surgery), I think this is a great resource to arm yourself with knowlege. Of course I am not medically trained, but I spent days coursing the internet and this info feels on target. And it really opened up my eyes. If you go into surgery, why not do it (or not do it) with your eyes wide open?

I could have avoided an unessary cortisone shot if I had gotten this earlier... Very easy reading..... Just raced/skimmed through it last night in a few hours.... Organized well making it a good reference... A steal for the cost...

I cannot think of any negatives. Though I imagine if I was a doc, I might have disagreements about specific technical assertions.

Don't get me wrong. If your doc is experienced and has a good repuation, you may be fine. But even this ain't necessarily so...

What the doc may not tell you about knee pain and surgery is really what this book is about.

Dr Grelsamer's list of unethical tricks played by unscrupulous doctors proved prophetic about a week after his book arrived. The surgeon I went to shook his head sadly, pointed to the miniscule meniscal tear possibly shown on an MRI and assured me that [for about $4000] he thought he could fix it. He actually denied that a meniscal tear could be repaired without surgery or that it could even be non-clinical [ie not a problem needing intervention]. He ticked most of the boxes in Grelsamer's book.

I, too, shook my head sadly, and walked away to continue my non-surgical rehab. I haven't decided what to spend that $4000 on yet!

So I didn't need the MRI after all. After three years of torture it was a large bone fragment floating around. Not arthritis.
The doctor, old school, could feel it and by my description knew surgery was required, whatever was wrong. Too bad so many doctors rely on "open for interpretation" MRI's these days.
Yes I would recommend this book. Very informative, understandable, and amusing.
