The Joint Kitchen: A Handbook for Orthopaedic Inventors and Fraidy Cats Facing a Knee or Hip Replacement

Adult; Self-Help & Relationships; (Market)

Imagine a doctor doing ordinary activities in his kitchen, stopping to draw some of the everyday objects around him, like an orange and a corkscrew. Then watch him turn those drawings into advanced patents for hip and knee replacements. Dr. Michael Ries holds 45 patents, and many of his ideas came to him in the kitchen. The remarkable efficiency of the human hip and knee are described here through simple illustrations, explaining why hip and knee replacements will never be quite as perfect as the joints we were born with. Health care professionals, patients considering joint replacement, students, and inventors will find The Joint Kitchen informative, entertaining, and thought-provoking. Dr. Ries shows that a state of tranquility allows the creative and problem-solving parts of the brain to connect and form new ideas that can transform and improve lives.
Reviews
Seth Greenwald, D.Phil.(Oxon), Director, Orthopaedic Research Laboratories, Cle

"The Joint Kitchen presents similes of everyday events which provide solutions for complex orthopaedic problems."

Alan Trustman, Author of Bullitt, The Thomas Crown Affair, Recipient of the Life

"An extraordinarily helpful book about creative thinking, describing exactly what happens with me every day when I am writing."

 

Michael E. Davies, Renowned Emergency Room and Trauma Physician

"A necessary read for anyone who . . . hopes to become the next Leonardo da Vinci!"

 

Michael H. Moskowitz, MD, MPH, Pain Management Specialist and Author of Medical

"The Joint Kitchen by Michael Ries is a book like none other on the creative process that blends knowledge and unfocused thought leading to "outside the box" medical inventions. Dr. Ries goes beyond explaining his thought process of discovery to a description of the "silent zone," that ushers in the alchemy of the 'Eureka' moment. Invention after invention pour out of his ability to see shapes in common objects, their natural utility and his brain's own sense of itself. His opening up to his 'silent zone' is an exact description of our brain's ability to drop into the recently discovered Default Mode Network, where many believe the deepest parts of our true sense of Self exists. This critical process is centrally involved in all creative endeavors."

 

Sigurd Berven, MD, Professor and Chief of Spine Service, Department of Orthopaed

"This book is a must read for anyone who may hope to improve creative thinking, and to innovate and problem solve using out of the box thinking."
