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
