Overview

Operative Techniques in Adult Reconstruction Surgery contains the chapters on adult reconstruction from Sam W. Wiesel's Operative Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery and provides full-color, step-by-step explanations of all operative procedures. Written by experts from leading institutions around the world, this superbly illustrated volume focuses on mastery of operative techniques and also provides a thorough understanding of how to select the best procedure, how to avoid complications, and what outcomes to expect.
The user-friendly format is ideal for quick preoperative review of the steps of a procedure. Each procedure is broken down step by step, with full-color intraoperative photographs and drawings that demonstrate how to perform each technique. Extensive use of bulleted points and tables allows quick and easy reference.
Each clinical problem is discussed in the same format: definition, anatomy, physical exams, pathogenesis, natural history, physical findings, imaging and diagnostic studies, differential diagnosis, non-operative management, surgical management, pearls and pitfalls, postoperative care, outcomes, and complications. To ensure that the material fully meets residents' needs, the text was reviewed by a Residency Advisory Board.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Samuel J. Chmell, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book details operative techniques, with truly superb illustrations, for hip and knee reconstruction, replacement, and revision. It is written by experts from leading institutions around the world.
Purpose: According to the authors, the purpose "is to describe in a detailed, step-by-step manner the 'how to do it' of the vast majority of orthopaedic procedures" for hip and knee replacement and revision. This is important for orthopedic surgeons, but especially so for orthopedic residents.
Audience: The book is intended for orthopedic surgeons and residents dealing with hip and/or knee replacement, reconstruction and revision. The authors certainly are credible authorities on this topic.
Features: This book describes specific procedures in a systematic way that makes abundant use of focused, original diagrams. Each chapter has been edited by a specialist who has specific expertise and experience in that area. Revision surgery and options are particularly well covered. The color diagrams are impeccable. The completeness of the treatise is evidenced by the inclusion of a chapter on knee arthrodesis and even the mention of arthroscopy for arthrofibrosis following knee replacement. The references are not extensive, but they are adequate.
Assessment: What makes this book stand out is the appropriate and carefully selected color art work. It represents evidence for the age-old adage that "a picture is worth a thousand words."
