This text is from the respected Master Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery series.

Designed for both medical students and experienced surgeons. This edition contains techniques and technologies that have evolved since the last edition was printed in 2003. Sections now include surgical approaches, principles of TKA, computer navigation utilization, complex issues frequently confronted during surgery, revisions of failed knee surgeries, alternative treatments to TKA, and management of complications following surgery.
