About this book
The growth of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) in orthopedics has been dramatic worldwide, as clinical results indicate that patients who undergo MIS procedures typically experience minimized blood loss, smaller incision scars, shorter hospital stays and quicker rehabilitation. Minimally Invasive Surgery in Orthopedics serves as the single-source reference in the field, compiled by recognized authorities and filled with information about even the most challenging MIS techniques. The book is divided into sections that focus on the shoulder and elbow, the hip, the knee, the foot and ankle, the spine, as well as computer navigation, and each section is heavily illustrated and clearly written for ease of understanding. Orthopedic surgeons, residents, and fellows who want to truly understand MIS will find this thorough text invaluable.
