An indispensable step-by-step guide on a full spectrum of open and arthroscopic knee procedures
Knee disorders are among the most common musculoskeletal conditions and, as such, constitute four of the top seven orthopaedic procedures. Currently, 720,000 knee replacements are performed annually in the US, with a projected 3.4 million surgeries by 2030. Knee Surgery: Tricks of the Trade edited by renowned knee surgeons and educators James P. Stannard, Andrew Schmidt, and Mauricio Kfuri features contributions from an impressive cadre of distinguished colleagues. The reader-friendly book fills a gap in the literature with easy-to-follow procedural guidance and pearls from a global who's who of top knee surgeons.
The book is organized in three sections covering trauma, sports medicine, and adult reconstruction. In addition to comprehensive step-by-step procedural techniques, each of the 54 chapters is consistently formatted with succinct sections covering goals, key principles, indications, contraindications, tips and pearls, potential complications, pitfalls, salvage techniques, and postoperative care. A full spectrum of open and arthroscopic knee surgery procedures are included, with discussion of primary and revision approaches. Topics include management of fractures, ligamentous injuries, meniscal pathologies, osteochondral repair, and all types of arthroplasties.
