ISBN: 978-0367030995

This book aims to explore hip problems in children, adolescents and adults. It then moves on to compare alternative protocols to treat these conditions.

There is a focus on emerging concepts of hip preservation surgery, which is maintained to conserve the native hip and delay arthroplasty.

The techniques discussed include evolving cartilage restoration and mesenchymal stem cells, moving on to various pelvic and femoral osteotomies. In addition, the book covers open and arthroscopic impingement surgery, as well as discussing digital templating for hip arthroplasty.

The book also offers coverage of various surgical approaches using clear illustrations.

Written by an experienced surgeon and editor, with contributions from many global experts who share their wisdom and expertise in the field, this book would be very useful to any healthcare professional or student interested in hip preservation surgery.
