Description: This is an excellent presentation of surgical techniques for the management of various arthritic conditions of the hip.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a manual of technical details of current surgical procedures used for the treatment of patients with hip disorders.
Audience: The audience includes orthopedic surgeons and other physicians and healthcare personnel interested in hip surgery.
Features: The authors start with a description of the technical details of procedures that do not involve prosthetic replacement, such as hip arthroscopy and femoral and periacetabular osteotomies. They then move on to replacement surgeries, covering femoral head replacement, total replacements, cemented and cementless, and various approaches and procedures used for revision surgery.
Assessment: This excellent book on the technical details of various surgical procedures commonly used in orthopedic practice could be of help in the operating room to surgeons, residents in training, nurses, and other healthcare providers involved and interested in the surgical management of hip disorders.
