Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: A more accurate title for this book would be minimally invasive arthroplasty, since arthroscopic and other minimally invasive techniques for the knee are not covered. Nonetheless, it is an efficient and current overview of minimally invasive knee arthroplasty.
Purpose: Although the authors do not define their purpose, in all honesty, it is unnecessary. The concept of minimally invasive surgery has been popular for over two decades. The hope is that if we can do the exact same procedure through a small incision, we will protect tissues and the patient will have less pain. The advances in and popularity of minimally invasive knee arthroplasty have grown significantly, but it remains controversial even among adult reconstructive surgeons. This handbook presents the technique by some of the leading innovators and inventors.
Audience: The target audience is relatively limited — adult reconstructive surgeons expanding their technical offerings from total joints to minimally invasive arthroplasty, general orthopedic surgeons who may choose either option for treatment, and, of course, residents in training. The authors have brought together a wonderful collection of leaders in the field who share innumerable pearls in each chapter.
Features: Each chapter focuses on a unique technique and approach for unicompartmental, total knee, and patellofemoral resurfacing arthroplasty and is authored by an expert in that particular technique or approach. The variety of techniques and styles is valuable and educates readers about the numerous available options. In a how-to book like this, I would expect more crystal-clear color images to help readers successfully reproduce the techniques.
Assessment: The authors have done an admirable job of presenting a collection of techniques and approaches for minimally invasive knee arthroplasty. This 200-page handbook provides an efficient review of the current state of the art in this field and it would be a nice addition to the libraries of adult reconstructive surgeons who want to expand their portfolios to minimally invasive techniques.
