# Sports Medicine and Arthroscopic Surgery of the Foot and Ankle 1st edition

It is with great pleasure and gratitude that I am able to edit Sports Medicine and Arthroscopic Surgery of the Foot and Ankle. The idea for this Sports Medicine and Arthroscopic Surgery of the Foot and Ankle 1st edition book came about through my contact and subsequent friendships with two well-known and innovative foot and ankle surgeons – Nicola Maffulli, M.D., Ph.D., and Kai Olms, M.D. – as we discussed the need to share international thought leaders’ concepts.

The globalization of foot and ankle surgery may not be readily apparent; however, in this Sports Medicine and Arthroscopic Surgery of the Foot and Ankle 1st edition book, there are many examples.I believe all the authors in this text share this commonality as our patients drive us to learn and excel, and I am grateful for the opportunity to pull this select group together. I am cognizant that many authors created chapters on topics that could be entire texts in their own right.

Furthermore, the need to publish in a foreign language provides additional stress, along with combining different writing styles in chapters where similar topics were “blended” together. This adds to this text’s uniqueness.I believe all the authors in this text share this commonality as our patients drive us to learn and excel, and I am grateful for the opportunity to pull this select group together.
