Editorial Reviews

From the reviews: "The book covers the topic of shoulder replacement in an excellent way . . You should really see the book as a basic publication on how to perform a replacement of the shoulder joint, and if you follow the recommendations you will avoid many of the mistakes still being made today. The basic surgical principles are well described . . This book is very useful in showing the basic principles to consider when doing hemi- and total shoulder replacement on various types of patients." (Rolf Norlin, Acta Orthopaedica, Vol. 77 (2), 2006)"This book describes the catch of load from the diagnosis and operational indication to postoperative rehabiliation. The surgical techniques are particularly detailed and are accompanied by many photographs, some of them in colour, allowing good comprehension. . This book will interest all surgeons who want to obtain good results with the prostheses of the shoulder." (Dr. A. Graftiaux, European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology, Vol. 17 (1), 2007)
