Tailbone-Coccyx Fractures and Dislocations, Last Chapter in New Medical Textbook

New Book Chapter on Coccyx  Fractures and Tailbone Dislocations, Last Chapter in New Medical Textbook
  • In this video, Dr. Foye discusses the chapter he wrote on Tailbone Fractures and Coccyx Dislocations.
  • This is the very last chapter in a recently published medical textbook.
  • Patrick Foye, M.D., is director of the Coccyx Pain Center at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.
  • Dr. Foye has many publications in medical journals and medical textbooks, especially on the topic of coccyx injuries and tailbone pain. He also lectures on this topic within the United States and internationally.
  • This book chapter will help physicians understood more about how to evaluate and treat fractures and dislocations of the coccyx.
Here is the TEXT from the video: (The actual VIDEO is lower down on this webpage.)
  • This video is about a new medical textbook that just came out (it’s 2018) with a chapter about coccyx dislocations and fractures (tailbone dislocations and fractures).
  • I’m Dr. Patrick Foye.
  • I’m an M.D. or medical doctor.
  • And I’m the Director of the Coccyx Pain Center or Tailbone Pain Center here in the United States.
  • I’m online at www.TailboneDoctor.com.
  • And just within the last couple of months I announced a different medical textbook, which was this one.
  • It was an atlas of spinal injection procedures.
  • And that was one where I had written a chapter on ganglion Impar injections for this medical textbook.
  • But now there is just another one that came into print.
  • This one is not so much on procedures but on general musculoskeletal, sports and spine disorders.
  • And this is a medical textbook mainly for physicians that practice musculoskeletal medicine (that treat sports injuries and other musculoskeletal injuries).
  • And basically the idea of this book is to help those physicians to learn about different topics.
  • And in this book the chapter that I wrote is specifically on coccyx fractures and dislocations.
  • It is the very last chapter in the book.
  • The idea of these chapters that I write in medical textbooks…
  • I’m an academic physician in the sense that I’m full-time faculty at a medical school and educating not only patients but also educating physicians.
  • It’s a large part of what I do as part of my profession, as part of my career, and in this case really trying to spread knowledge about how to evaluate and treat patients with tailbone injuries.
  • So… many, many patients fly in to see me from around the country and occasionally internationally.
  • And very commonly one of the things they’ll say is that their local doctors did not know very much about how to evaluate their coccyx pain (tailbone pain) or coccyx injuries (tailbone injuries) and let alone how to treat them.
  • So in addition to the things that I publish and write for patients I also try of course to continue publishing for other physicians to help them with understanding these conditions as well.
  • So it is the very, very last chapter in this book.
  • So… Chapter 102 out of 102 chapters.
  • So the tailbone comes at the end. But that’s fine because it’s in there.
  • So hopefully this will serve as a valuable resource for physicians.
  • You can see that this chapter is specifically on coccyx fractures and dislocations.
  • This image here showing a fracture at the tailbone and then the text describing all about that.
  • Basically discussing here everything from the definition as far as fracture versus dislocation.
  • The diagnosis of fractures and dislocations.
  • There’s another image here you may like to see.
  • This is showing a dislocation at the coccyx or tailbone right there where the arrow is pointing.
  • Talking about the things to consider…
  • How to make the diagnosis by your history… your physical examination findings…
  • The different types of imaging studies…
  • Getting the appropriate x-rays or MRI or in some cases CT scans bone scans, etc. depending on the specifics in a given patient…
  • And then talking about the different treatment options.
  • So, again… many patients who are watching my videos will know me from either the videos or the online articles that I write, or from the book that I’ve written specifically for patients, which is “Tailbone Pain Relief Now!”
  • But the bulk of what I do over the last twenty some years in academic medicine is actually working to educate physicians as well, which is through textbook chapters and things along those lines.
  • So it is the last chapter but the important thing is that it’s in there to serve as an educational resource for physicians who are evaluating patients with tailbone pain.
  • So this is one book I would recommend certainly if you’re a musculoskeletal physician   interested in learning more about a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions.
  • This is available through Springer which is a major medical publisher.
  • Or certainly available through your medical textbook bookstores and online of course at Amazon etc.
  • If your patient more interested in reading from a patient perspective.. that book as this is more geared for physicians.
  • This book Tailbone Pain Relief Now! is geared towards patients.
  • And this is 272 pages.
  • And it has chapters specifically on tailbone fractures and chapter on tailbone dislocations as well as a wide variety of other tailbone-related conditions.
  • This book you can get online.
  • The easiest way is by going to www.TailboneBook.com and it will give you the links to the appropriate pages on Amazon in your different countries and things of that nature.
  • You can get the book either as a paperback copy or in an electronic book e-book version.
  • So that’s information about the books and about the new publication.
  • For me it’s always exciting.
  • This project for this textbook I’ve probably been working on for about I’m going to say about three years since I first started or was asked to write the chapter.
  • It takes a relatively long time for things to come to print within the world of medicine.
  • So I just thought I’d share that.
  • It’s always nice when it finally comes in print because that’s when it can go out and make a positive difference hopefully in the world.
  • If you’re interested in coming to see me or find more information that I have about tailbone pain you can find that on my website which is www.TailboneDoctor.com
  • Bye bye.
