About this book


This book presents the latest knowledge in the evaluation and management of hip- and groin-related injuries in athletes. Techniques of hip arthroscopy, as well as their limitations and possible complications, are clearly described, and guidance is provided on the use of periarticular hip endoscopy in patients with periarticular problems. A series of chapters address the potential approaches in the various conditions that may be encountered in athletes, including femoroacetabular impingement, athletic pubalgia, chondral and labral injuries, and hip instability by world renowned experts in the field.  Considerations in particular age groups, especially adolescents, are highlighted. Rehabilitation is discussed in detail, and a concluding chapter examines emerging perspectives on the management of hip injuries. The book is published in collaboration with ISAKOS and combines the international expertise of ISAKOS members renowned for their management of injuries to the hip and groin. Hip and Groin Pain in the Athlete will be a must-read for team physicians and all clinicians who treat athletes.
