This book describes current and emerging techniques in hip surgery, providing the essential, up-to-date knowledge that will be required by the orthopaedic surgeon who plans to become a specialist hip surgeon.
The opening chapter offers a concise overview of the surgical anatomy, with particular attention to details relevant to the surgical techniques outlined in the book. The increasingly popular anterior minimally invasive approach to the hip and a microinvasive variation of this approach are then described. Subsequent chapters present surgical approaches to developmental disorders of the hip, including dysplasia and femoroacetabular impingement, and promising hip preservation techniques for avascular necrosis of the hip - an often neglected but internationally relevant disease that can mutilate the hip in young patients.
Finally, the latest techniques and implants for primary and revision hip arthroplasty are discussed in depth. The international author team consists of recognized leaders in the field, many of whom have developed the described classifications and new surgical techniques.
