The technique-based text is geared for the orthopedic surgeon who is familiar with the features of MIS and now wants to master the approach. The book covers the shoulder and elbow, the hip, unicondylar knee arthroplasty, and MIS total knee arthroplasty, which are the four main focus areas for MIS joint replacement surgery. Chapters written by leading authorities in the field include usage techniques for the latest instrumentation, and they guide surgeons step-by-step through procedures. In addition, a section is devoted to computer-guided total hip and knee arthroplasty. More than 300 detailed line drawings and photographs supplement the discussion by clearly illustrating how the techniques are performed. This practical resource is a great tool for orthopedic surgeons, residents, and fellows who want to confidently learn and apply cutting-edge MIS techniques. Although the text has value as a stand-alone reference, it also complements Drs. Scuderi and Tria's MIS of the Hip and Knee: A Clinical Perspective.
