About this book


J.W. Thomas Byrd, MD, and other pioneers in the field have made remarkable advancements in hip arthroscopy that are presented with clarity and precision in this comprehensive second edition. Not only are the fundamentals covered that have made the first edition a classic text, such as discussions of patient selection, portal placement, and postoperative recovery, but also the latest arthroscopic techniques. New chapters written by a distinguished group of international contributors examine cutting-edge topics, including endoscopic treatments, arthroscopic assisted and combined open hip procedures, and hip arthroscopy for athletes. Current imaging techniques involving MRI and injection dyes are outlined as well.

The text reflects a shift in focus from performing diagnostic arthroscopy to performing operative arthroscopy based on an improved understanding of pathomechanics and pathophysiology. An emphasis is placed on helping orthopedic residents and orthopedists make wise decisions regarding procedure selection and implementation. Related outcomes data and the dos and don’ts of techniques are detailed. In addition, more than 300 illustrations, many in color, show step-by-step how procedures are performed. Orthopedists looking to apply state-of-the-art minimally invasive hip techniques will find this text to be an ideal guide.
