Book Content Description

As a follow-up to his previous best-selling book, “Issues and Management of Joint Hypermobility: A Guide for the Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Hypermobility Type and the Hypermobility Syndrome,” Dr. Tinkle has created this handbook with several contributors to expand insights into the understanding and management of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Hypermobility Type and the Hypermobility Syndrome. Dr. Tinkle has received many accolades for his ability to take a complex condition and make it understandable in everyday language: “…provides a wealth of information about the natural history, and physical and medical management… It should be of great value to patients.” – The American Journal of Medical Genetics Reader comments… “…a useful tool in helping me obtain the type of care I need to manage my disorder…” “This book is simple but not oversimplified. It is an excellent basic resource, giving a clear, concise, and useful overview for those (like myself) who live with hypermobility.” “Super book for EDS! Finally a book that everyone can understand.” “…thoroughly explores the problems associated with EDS-HM. It is a relief to realize that it is not just me…” “…a tremendous service for the health care community and the families and friends of those diagnosed or not yet formally diagnosed folks with EDS-HM… joy and clarity in reading the very ‘easy to read’ text chapters detailing out the impact of EDS-HM…” In addition to the wealth of positive reviews, Dr. Tinkle’s previous book on the same subject was a best seller in several categories: – Genetics – Medical Genetics – Orthopedics – Family and General Practice.

Brad T. Tinkle, M.D., Ph.D., is a clinical geneticist at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital. He specializes in caring for individuals with heritable connective tissue disorders such as Ehlers-Danlos syndromes, Marfan syndrome, osteogenesis imperfecta, and skeletal dysplasias among the many.

Wendy is a perky, vivacious adolescent entering middle school with a lifelong vision of becoming an cheerleader. Wendy has been called bendy by family and friends because she’s been limber and flexible throughout her life, earning her the nickname ‘Bendy Wendy.’

As soon as she’s about to realize her ultimate aspiration of making the cheerleading squad as a flyer, Wendy worries that her dream will be shattered by constant physical issues plaguing her during rigorous practices and performances.

On the outside, Wendy looks perfectly ‘normal,’ but clearly something more is going on.  Join Wendy and her parents on their journey through a diagnosis and revelations of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome / joint hypermobility, an ‘almost’ invisible genetic syndrome.  

“Bendy Wendy and the (Almost) Invisible Genetic Syndrome… A story of one tween’s diagnosis of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome / joint hypermobility” was written to fill a need for families, children, and tweens that find themselves in a position of understanding and explaining, in basic terms, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and the issues associated with it.

It’s been thoughtfully developed by bone and connective tissue disorder expert Dr. Brad T Tinkle and his award-winning children’s book author wife, Laurren Darr.  For almost a decade, they had dinner-time conversations on how to better serve and reassure children and families affected by Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome / joint hypermobility.  “Bendy Wendy and the (Almost) Invisible Genetic Syndrome… A story of one tween’s diagnosis of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome / joint hypermobility” is the culmination of that goal.
