Summary note:
"The treatment of chondral damage and early arthritis in active patients remains a challenge. Biologic Joint Reconstruction: Alternatives to Arthroplasty has accepted this challenge, providing a comprehensive look into the fast growing area of cartilage repair and early arthritis surgery for virtually every major joint." "Drs. Brian J. Cole and Andreas H. Gomoll have created a text that includes a detailed approach to surgical management utilizing procedures relative to all joints such as osteotomy, cartilage repair, cartilage restoration, and limited resurfacing. Treatment indications, surgical techniques, and nonoperative treatment in the knee, shoulder, hip, and smaller joints are also highlighted in the text." "Biologic Joint Reconstruction is the only orthopedic text on the market that combines discussion of biological and limited prosthetic options for the treatment of chondral damage and early arthritis for the young active adult, as well as for traditional joint replacement patients."--BOOK JACKET.
