This technique-based text is geared for the orthopedic surgeon who is familiar with the features of MIS and now wants to master the approach. Edited by distinguished authorities in the field, the book covers four main areas for MIS joint replacement surgery: the shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee. Contributors share their valued expertise on the very techniques they have pioneered as they explain the latest instrumentation and present procedures step-by-step. Cutting-edge approaches are detailed throughout, and one section is specifically devoted to computer navigation. The wealth of insight is supplemented by more than 390 line drawings and photographs that illustrate how techniques are performed. An indispensable resource for orthopedic surgeons, residents, and fellows, this unparalleled guide is ideal for readers who want to confidently learn and apply MIS techniques.
