This splendid volume is easily understandable, uses real-life situations as examples and is far more up-to-the-minute than other such books. From sexuality to surgery, it offers practical and science-based advice.--Charles M. Plotz, M.D., Editor-in-Chief, Rheuma21st.com

Your complete guide to understanding and living well with rheumatoid arthritis

If you or someone close to you suffers from rheumatoid arthritis (RA), this book is a powerful tool you don't want to be without. Two of the authors are physicians at the Hospital for Special Surgery, one of the nation's oldest and best orthopedic research hospitals. Its purpose is to arm you with the information you need to take charge of your disease management and work with your doctors to develop a treatment program that's right for your lifestyle and life goals.

In plain English, the authors demystify rheumatoid arthritis-its causes, progression, and various effects on the human body-and decode the often perplexing language that doctors use to describe RA and its diagnosis and treatment. They explain the various treatment and pain management options available to you and ways to discuss them with your doctor. The authors also include the true stories of RA patients whose tales offer encouragement and powerful insights for dealing with the difficult psychological and lifestyle issues RA sufferers face. Their expert advice and guidance covers a range of topics of vital concern to people affected by RA, including:
* Old, new, and emerging drug therapies, including gold, corticosteroids, and immunosuppressants
* Analgesics and anti-inflammatories
* Alternative treatment strategies
* Nutrition, diet, and exercise for RA
* Vitamins and supplements, including glucosamine and Evening Primrose oil
* Managing crucial lifestyle issues such as sports, travel, and sex
* Pregnancy and RA
* Alleviating depression and pain
* Surgical options, including joint replacement therapy

About the Author:

STEPHEN A. PAGET, M.D., is Physician-in-Chief of the Hospital for Special Surgery.
MICHAEL D. LOCKSHIN, M.D., is Professor of Medicine at the Hospital for Special Surgery.
SUZANNE LOEBL is a biochemist and the coauthor of several books, including The Columbia Presbyterian Osteoarthritis Handbook.

Review:

* Authored by two physicians who work in the field along with a biochemist, Loebl (The Columbia Presbyterian Osteoarthritis Handbook), this authoritative guide will be useful to health professionals, people afflicted with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), and their families. RA, a chronic autoimmune disorder, causes inflammation, stiffness and sometimes destruction of joints. While the severity of its symptoms varies, this systemic disease affects 2.5 million people in the U.S. and is more common among women than men. A cure continues to elude researchers, but medical advances, including the discovery of new drugs to ease pain and improve movement, advances in surgical procedures and the development of exercise and nutrition regimens, have greatly improved patients' physical and emotional health. In addition to providing valuable information about the drugs (their benefits and side effects) and operations (from diagnostic anthroscopy to total joint replacement) available, the authors address the special problems and needs of pregnant women with RA. The wealth of details about medicines and surgeries may occasionally overwhelm lay readers, but the practical advice about self care and taking control of one's personal treatment plan will empower RA patients. With authors dedicated to providing information about everything from alternative therapies to radical surgery and from methods of pain control to the RA patient's sex life, this a worthwhile resource indeed. (Nov.) (Publishers Weekly, October 15, 2001)

Devotion to detail and well-written information that truly matters to a patient's quality of life distinguish this comprehensive, sensible guide by the country's leading orthopedic institution. It also sensitively takes care to address the issues patient may be too shy to discuss with healthcare providers. Highlights include the chapters on medications, occupational therapy, and all the surgery sections. The text is well-illustrated, and the drawings on sexual positions for post-hip replacement surgery demonstrate recommended moves as well as those to be avoided. Essential. (Library Journal, January 2002)
