Features

  • Contains excellent, high-resolution figures of the hip joint that are not found in other books or even on the Internet
  • Includes contributions from experienced consultants such as Drs. John O'Donnell (Melbourne, Australia), Manfred Krieger and Ilan Elias (Frankfurt, Germany), and Nicholas Goddard (London, U.K.)
  • Includes discussions of (i) the direct anterior approach to the hip joint, which is the fastest-growing area of hip replacement surgery in Australia and the world, and (ii) mesenchymal stem cell treatment of cartilage lesions in the hip, an area that is making rapid progress and should be taking center stage and a definitive shape in the next few decades in almost all branches of medicine

Summary

This book gives important details of how surgery of the hip joint has evolved around the world. The 22 original chapters are written by experienced consultants, including Drs. John O'Donnell (Melbourne, Australia), Manfred Krieger and Ilan Elias (Frankfurt, Germany), and Nicholas Goddard (London, U.K.). Each chapter is accompanied by excellent, unique figures and references at the end for further reading. The book focuses on several important topics such as the direct anterior approach to the hip joint, setup of a total hip in a day, early experiences in outpatient hip surgery, advances in short-stem total hip arthroplasty (which is becoming increasingly popular in Europe and also worldwide), advances in hemophilic hip joint arthropathy, mesenchymal stem cell treatment of cartilage lesions in the hip over the next few decades, and minimally invasive surgery of the hip joint. This book is a must-have and invaluable reference for any student interested in the progress in hip joint surgery
