About this book


Currently, younger and more active patients with arthritis, trauma and other joint diseases are getting predictable and durable results from total knee arthroplasty. Studies show that this procedure maintains a high level of performance, longevity and patient satisfaction for all age groups. Two well-known knee experts have assembled a group of "giants" in the field to present a book encompassing the best techniques for total knee arthroplasty. Concise chapters covers indications, contraindications, complications, results, instrumentation, infection, preoperative planning, prosthetic choice, revision arthroplasty, and more - with the emphasis on the best techniques and surgical "pearls", supported by line drawings, intraoperative photographs and radiographs. This definitive volume will serve as the complete and quick reference on "how to do" total knee arthroplasty.
