Overview

Extensively revised, Operative Arthroscopy, Fourth Edition remains the most comprehensive and authoritative reference in this rapidly advancing specialty. The previous editions of this book were heavy into basic science and attempted to cover all of the anatomic joints. The Fourth Edition has been completely revamped and reorganized; the basic science content has been reduced to the essentials and chapters on history and ethics have been removed. The chapter format has been reorganized to focus on step-by-step, “how-to-do-it” material. The anatomic areas covered in the book are the knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, foot, and ankle; areas that the sports medicine specialist typically handles. World-renowned experts describe the latest instrumentation and techniques and detail proven minimally invasive procedures.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a necessary update of a key reference, last published in 2003, that covers the gamut of operative arthroscopy from shoulder to ankle. Arthroscopy is a dynamic field and advances occur quickly in techniques, but even more so in joints (like the hip).
Purpose: The author dedicates the book to Jack McGinty, who served as editor for the first three editions, and states that his purpose is to follow in McGinty's footsteps by creating a reference of the most current arthroscopic procedures in enough detail that readers can reproduce them. He also reminds readers that practice is key and taking the opportunity to practice at cadaver courses such as those offered by the AAOS Orthopaedic Learning Center is helpful. The challenge the author and his colleagues have is to create an up-to-date reference in a field that is constantly changing. They have accomplished this goal by recruiting key experts and contributors from across the country.
Audience: This is a good book for orthopedic surgeons currently in practice, but it is especially valuable for residents, fellows in training, and young surgeons just starting their practice.
Features: It is organized into anatomic regions, guided adroitly by coauthors Ned Amendola, Alan Barber, Larry Field, John Richmond, and Nicholas Sgaglione. Each section covers basic setup and portals for the most current and advanced procedures. The accompanying online version makes the book accessible anywhere. The searchable image bank is a nice bonus for readers who wish to use an image for a presentation. However, the best thing about this book is the impressive list of contributors who are the leaders in arthroscopy.
Assessment: This has always been one of the leading references in arthroscopy. The author has done a remarkable job of bringing it up to date and providing a key, leading reference in the field. Some competing books represent one person's or one group's preference for how to do things. This book bests those by bringing together key leaders in arthroscopy to educate readers about fundamentals and techniques in which they are expert. For libraries, it is time to replace the decade-old third edition.
