The only book to deal specifically with the treatment of gait problems in cerebral palsy, this comprehensive, multi-disciplinary volume is invaluable for all those working in the field of cerebral palsy and gait.

The book is divided into two parts. The first is designed to help the reader evaluate and understand a child with cerebral palsy. It deals with neurological control, musculoskeletal growth, and normal gait, as well as cerebral injury, growth deformities and gait pathology in children with cerebral palsy. The second section is a comprehensive overview of management. It emphasizes the most fundamental concept of treatment: manage the child’s neurologic dysfunction first and then address the skeletal and muscular consequences of that dysfunction.

The book has been thoroughly updated since the previous edition, with a greater focus on treatment and several entirely new topics covered, including chapters on the operative treatment of orthopaedic deformities.

The book is accompanied by downloadable teaching videos on normal gait and motion analysis data of all case examples used in the book, as well as teaching videos demonstrating the specifics of many of the procedures used in the correction of gait deformities and gait modelling examples from the Department of Bioengineering at Stanford University.

INDEX

‘The eagerly-awaited second edition of this text is a heavy-weight in all senses. In addition to the core editorship from Gillette Children's Hospital, there are 32 other contributors to the book that runs to over 600 pages and two DVDs. Overall impressions are positive; in general it reads well and the standard of illustrations is excellent.'

J Mark H Paterson, DMCN, 2010

‘It is an excellent book which should be read by all clinicians caring for patients with CP. This book provides an excellent starting point for approaching understanding and treatment to improve the lives of our patients with CP.’

Michael D. Sussman, Journal of Children's Orthopaedics, 2010

‘The second edition expands and improves on what was already a classic. I was impressed by the fact that much of the text was devoted to educating the reader on the nature of cerebral palsy and how it results in gait abnormalities. One does not need to be an expert on motion analysis nor have a gait laboratory to greatly benefit from this work. Gage and colleagues have produced a monumental and important work. All children’s orthopedists should be aware of this text, and those who treat cerebral palsy should have it on their desk.’

Dennis Wenger, Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics, 2010

'This outstanding book is the brainchild of James R. Gage, MD, medical director emeritus, Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare, St. Paul, Minnesota, and professor of orthopedics emeritus at University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. He is supported by local associate editors and others, including: Michael H. Schwartz, PhD, director of bioengineering research; Steven E. Koop, MD, professor of orthopedics; and Tom F. Novacheck, MD, associate professor of orthopedics. Gates has devoted his entire medical career to caring for children with CP and teaching other medical professionals. His pioneering work on gait analysis is recognized around the world. The diplegic CP child with a crouch gait is the focus of this work. The availability of a gait analysis study forms the basis for planning treatment and evaluating outcome. This is the most authoritative work on the subject worldwide. It is a must purchase for all those who care for these children. Medical libraries are expected to have this in their reference section.'

Edward Abraham, MD, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine

'Of the available resources for increasing your understanding of this presentation, there are none more comprehensive than this publication.
