Overview

This book reviews the recent international experience with the applications of computer assisted orthopaedic surgery in clinical practice. Recent decades of the human condition have witnessed the dramatic evolution of technology and the application to everyday existence. The ability to use such innovation in surgical practice is now easily within our grasp. Though clinical experience is short term, as will be demonstrated the problems are finite and limited only by the need for refinement. We can now clearly state that current surgical practice will be revolutionized by these new methodologies. This edition is all encompassing for musculoskeletal surgery including the spine, trauma, sports, and reconstructive surgery. Because of its simplicity, computer navigation will be an early tool in such areas as total joint replacement, anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, and placement of pedicle screws in complex spinal surgery. New techniques in Minimally Invasive Surgery will require the precision and digital "surgical exposure" offered by the computer. However, we anticipate in a few years, that robotics with computer activated technology will rise to an important role for the practicing surgeon. Surgeons who are comfortable with technology and yearn for better solutions with their techniques will benefit from the knowledge of this experience. Americans at the AAOS 2003 annual meeting in New Orleans, have now joined the wave of enthusiasm for computer assisted orthopaedic surgery (CAOS) as well as the exciting new vistas of Minimally Invasive Surgery.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Riad Barmada, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive book on the various systems and technologies currently available on navigation and robotics techniques used in hip, knee, and spine surgery.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a reference on these new techniques to orthopedic surgeons who are interested in this innovation that could provide precise and accurate positioning of the various prosthetic components used in replacement surgery.
Audience: Orthopedic surgeons are the intended audience, but the audience should also include orthopedic residents, bioengineers and other healthcare personnel involved.
Features: A good chapter on basic principles of computer assisted surgery includes up-to-date information on navigation and robotic systems available, their principles, description, application, and techniques. The more suitable procedures are described in detail, such as hip replacement, knee replacement, tibial osteotomy, cruciate ligament reconstruction, and spine surgery.
Assessment: Precision and accurate positioning are essential in joint replacement and relate directly to the success of the outcome of the procedure. The various modalities of computer-assisted surgery are relatively new techniques in orthopedic surgery that improve the accuracy of positioning prosthetic components used in hip and knee surgery. This book provides an excellent, up-to-date reference on these new methods, which are not commonly used in today's practices, but without a doubt will become more popular. In my opinion, this book should be included in every orthopedic library.
