Professor Savio L-Y. Woo, PhD, DSc, is the Whiteford Professor of Bioengineering and the Director of the Musculoskeletal Research Centre (MSRC). This is a diverse multidisciplinary research and educational center in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh where over 450 orthopaedic surgeons, bioengineering students and staff have studied and worked. He arrived at the University of Pittsburgh in 1990 after spending 20 years at the University of California in San Diego as a Professor of Surgery and Bioengineering. Dr. Woo has been elected to the Institute of Medicine, The National Academy of Engineering and Academia Sinica. In 1998, he was the winner of the IOC Olympic Prize for Sports Medicine and the first Olympic Gold Medal in Nagano, Japan Professor Per A.F.H. Renstrom is a professor in sports medicine at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden Professor Steven P. Arnoczky, DVM, is the Director, of the Laboratory for Comparative Orthopaedic Research at Michigan State University and has been working in the area of musculoskeletal research for over 30 years. His basic science research in the area of musculoskeletal tissue injury and repair has resulted in numerous clinical advances in the field of orthopaedic sports medicine. His current research interests involve the role of mechanical signalling in the etiopathogenesis of tendinopathy


"The editors of the work coordinated the contributions of forty-seven specialists in medical, sports and health science related fields. Recommended for specialists in sports medicine and orthopedics and for medical libraries and academic libraries with kinesiology, physical therapy and sports medicine curriculum." (E-Streams, September 2008) "This is a good read for those with a strong interest in tendinopathy...the book does provide a quality and in-depth summation of the current knowledge." (Doodys Reviews)
