Synopses & Reviews
Volume II of Surgery of the Hip Joint is one of the few surgical books to focus on the vital hip region. This comprehensive reference is extensively illustrated and presents a detailed account of current developments in hip joint surgery, emphasizing the most up-to-date techniques of surgical management. It is written by experts in the field and provides an in-depth survey of all the surgical aspects of treating hip disease and details the methods used for the successful completion of these procedures. A compendium of practical application, this book will prove to be an essential tool for anyone involved in this area of specialization.
The first edition of Surgery of the Hip loint has had certain measures of success. Its cover won the Outstanding Award for art at a publishers trade show. A year later it was translated into Spanish for exposure to the vast world of the Spanish speaking peoples. As I traveled through Europe, it was repeatedly a pleasant surprise to have the book recognized as an authorita- tive reference. This was a great tribute to the experts whose diligent efforts made it all possible. Apparently the book has stood the test of time to judge from the many inquiries and constructive comments made toward urging us on to write a second edition. It was not an easy task to gather another cadre of authorities to update our knowledge of the hip joint. People who have earned respected positions in their field are unavoidably burdened with a busy schedule, so a chapter in this text must be appreciated as coming from someone devoted to giving up some of his precious time for the sake of sharing his knowledge with peers and students.
