Minimally invasive orthopaedic procedures are beginning to revolutionize joint replacement surgery, yet surgeons have lacked a comprehensive reference on MIS techniques for two key joints: the hip and the knee. To satisfy this need, Drs. Scuderi and Tria, noted experts on MIS, selected contributors who are recognized authorities on MIS techniques. The contributors share their expertise and experience with the latest advancements in their respective specialties. Readers will find sought-after information, including guidelines on patient selection and recommendations on instrumentation, and each technique is explained clearly and comprehensively. The section devoted to total hip arthroplasty discusses both the two-incision approach and mini-incision. The section dedicated to the knee covers minimally invasive unicompartmental arthroplasty, minimal incision total knee arthroplasty, and minimally invasive total knee arthroplasty. This unique book also outlines the European experience with unicondylar knee arthroplasty. The practical advice found throughout the text is complemented by more than 150 photographs and illustrations that highlight key concepts. Since the book is designed to help surgeons evaluate and implement new MIS techniques quickly and confidently, this volume will be a prime addition to any orthopaedist's library.
