A fully updated edition, this classic text on the knee is highly illustreated in color and offers a fundamental approach to dealing with soft-tissue and skeletal disorders in the knee.
The book focuses on younger patients, rather than degenerative conditions, covering both injuries and congenital abnormalities. The crucial skills of accurate history-taking, clinical examiniation, investigation and modern surgical management are the focus throughout. From this framework, the latest techniques in imaging and arthroscopic procedures, rehabilitation methods and cruciate ligament reconstruction are discussed, plus indications for techniques such as meniscal suturing and osteochondral grafting.
