Arthroscopic Techniques of the Knee: A Visual Guide
As minimally invasive surgeries for commonly scoped joints increase, the Visual Arthroscopy Series led by Dr. James R. Andrews and Dr. Tal S. David will answer the call for all in orthopedic surgery seeking succinct and highly visual books that will provide step-by step-instructions on arthroscopic techniques for the shoulder, knee, and hip.
Arthroscopic Techniques of the Knee: A Visual Guide by Dr. Thomas J. Gill is unique in its presentation in that it is meant to be used as a “how-to” technique guide that includes intraoperative photos taken with the arthroscope, detailing and illustrating each step in arthroscopic surgery of the knee from start to finish.
Dr. Thomas J. Gill is joined by multiple contributors, each a national leader in his or her area of expertise. As each expert presents his or her experience with each procedure, (and not a review of the current literature), the orthopedist will benefit from the vast experience of this group of experts.
Some chapter topics include:
• Diagnostic Arthroscopy—set-up and instrumentation
• Articular Cartilage Resurfacing-microfracture; osteochondral transplantation; autologous chondrocyte implantation
• Pediatric Osteochondral Injuries—special issues and techniques
• ACL—current topics in both single-and double-bundle reconstruction
• PCL—current topics in both single-and double-bundle transtibial and tibial inlay techniques
Inside You Will Find:
• A description of surgical goals
• Step-by-step “how-to” and illustrative instructions
• Tips and pearls and pitfalls section
With the precise instructions of an illustrative “how-to” guide, Arthroscopic Techniques of the Knee: A Visual Guide is highly organized and easy-to-read resource perfect for orthopedic residents, fellows, and experiences surgeons involved with sports injuries and arthroscopic surgery.
