A reader-friendly overview of the fundamentals in hip pathology and treatment presented by esteemed experts!

Synopsis of Hip Surgery by renowned hip specialists Shane Nho, Joshua Harris, Brett Levine, and an impressive group of contributors provides a well-rounded perspective on the surgical and nonsurgical management of common to rare hip conditions. The generously illustrated clinical reference is both concise and comprehensive, not only encompassing the full age continuum but also a wide array of hip disorders such as congenital and degenerative issues and problems associated with sports injuries.

The first seven chapters lay a solid foundation, covering hip anatomy, patient history, physical examination, radiographic imaging, diagnostic tests, biomechanics, pathomechanics, and implant biology. Subsequent chapters detail prevalent conditions such as femoroacetabular impingement syndrome, hip dysplasia, soft-tissue injuries, and osteoarthritis. The text also covers less common diseases including synovial proliferative disorders, primary and metastatic tumors, and osteonecrosis. Procedure-specific chapters focus on primary and revision total hip arthroplasty and hip replacement surgery.
