Editorial Reviews



"This magnificent text utilizes 119 international contributors and over 1300 illustrations to provide information about the history and development of distraction osteogenesis and its application to craniofacial deformities and/or deficiencies. The fact that the authors chose to present all of the topics in one extremely comprehensive textbook underscores a very strong theme of multidiscipline care for patients requiring treatment of facial deformities and related problems. Maxillofacial prosthodontists, maxillofacial surgeons, and orthodontists can best utilize this comprehensive text, especially those professionals who are part of a multidiscipline team treating patients with facial deformities."
- Journal of Prosthodontics - March 2004

I've had this book for a couple of years now but I'm just getting around to reviewing it. While I'm not a doctor and much of the book can be over your head in some ways as a layperson, I still found the book to be extremely valuable and is my bible in jaw distraction. My daughter has a facial syndrome and has had three jaw distractions already, with more to go and I recognize many of the great doctors and their devices in the book. I even passed the book around to several of her doctors who found aspects of it fascinating even though they may have known already about jaw distraction. The downside of the book is that while it is packed with information, it's much like a computer; it's mostly passe by the time it gets published because jaw distraction has gone on to bigger and better things. I would love to see the follow-up book to this one even if it will be passe once published!

After looking for "the best" orthodontist for my treatment, I found Dr. Cope. We discussed our treatment plan, treatment time and agreed upon price and other specifics. Three months after bracket placement he pulled 16 teeth out of their roots, slanted my teeth so the top left teeth were longer than the top right, and the bottom right teeth are longer than the bottom left teeth. When I complained to him about the pain of my teeth, pain in my muscles and severe pain in my jaw he told me that my pain was too severe and the relaxed pain free position of my jaw had changed too much for him to continue treatment. He ended my treatment and refused to refund over $5000. After two months of back and forth email and continually catching him in lies he agreed to refund my money if I waived his professional responsibility (ie, my right to sue). When I did not agree he had his attorney contact me. Needless to say, if you are looking for a book that is based on professional experience then keep on going.
