Fundamentals of Revision Knee Arthroplasty: Diagnosis, Evaluation, and Treatment is a unique and very timely book designed for surgeons who are beginning to more commonly encounter knee revisions in their practice. Unlike many traditional books on revision, Fundamentals of Revision Knee Arthroplasty does not focus on the most difficult and challenging of cases. Rather, Fundamentals of Revision Knee Arthroplasty is intended to guide the surgeon in the evaluation of the failed or painful total joint replacement, review basic tenants and surgical principles of revision arthroplasty, and guide the surgeon in determining whether a given case is one that should be managed or is best referred to a tertiary orthopedic center. Along with their 32 contributors, Dr. David J. Jacofsky and Dr. Anthony K. Hedley provide detailed information inside Fundamentals of Revision Knee Arthroplasty, including appropriate preoperative evaluation, equipment requirements, surgical planning, need for augments and allograft, and surgical techniques. Surgeons will be tackling knee revision surgery more frequently as the number of these cases is exponentially increasing. Fundamentals of Revision Knee Arthroplasty provides a "go-to" resource to turn to for guidance by community arthroplasty surgeons, arthroplasty fellows, and residents.
