Springer will launch Current Reviews in Musculoskeletal Medicine (CRMM) in March 2008. The new journal will cover orthopedics, sports medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation and will be published under the Humana Press imprint. CRMM will provide up-to-date, evidence-based standard of care information for the full array of musculoskeletal disorders.
Published quarterly, Current Reviews in Musculoskeletal Medicine will be primarily composed of evidence-based review articles. In addition, special sections will present editorials from leading thinkers in the field discussing controversial topics as well as breaking news in musculoskeletal medicine. The entire spectrum of musculoskeletal care will be discussed, including initial evaluation, conservative management, surgical referral and the pros and cons of different surgical options. The editors-in-chief are Grant Cooper, MD, of the New York Presbyterian Hospital and University Hospitals of Columbia and Cornell and Joseph E. Herrera, DO, of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, NY.

Along with our expanding book program in musculoskeletal medicine, Current Reviews in Musculoskeletal Medicine represents Humanas deep commitment to providing musculoskeletal medicine physicians with the most comprehensive, state-of-the-art content possible.
