Springer will launch Current Reviews in Musculoskeletal Medicine (CRMM) in March 2008.

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.
