About this book

Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Foot and Ankle is a collection of procedures presented by experts and pioneers in foot and ankle surgery who share an interest in developing less invasive methods of treating disorders of the foot and ankle. Procedures described in detail in this text avoid extensive soft tissue dissection and minimize soft tissue complications while affording results equal to those reported using traditional extensile exposures. These less invasive techniques may minimize post-operative stiffness and pain and shorten operative times and hospital stays. The minimally invasive procedures are not discussed in isolation; instead, they are compared and contrasted with open and arthroscopic methods. Moreover, the concise written text is complemented by a generous assortment of useful clinical photos, diagrams, and imaging studies.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This 400-page book describes arthroscopic and endoscopic management of various foot and ankle difficulties and injuries. … The intended audience includes orthopedic surgeons and other healthcare professionals involved … with foot and ankle decompression. … This book is dedicated to a relatively recent surgical technique. Arthroscopic surgery on the knee, shoulder, and hip has been used for many years, but its use in foot surgery is in the developing stages and this book provides a good reference. … a good addition to the orthopedic literature.” (Riad Barmada, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2011)

“The book is organized into 6 parts, each based on a different anatomical location. … This method of organization is both effective and user friendly. … Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Foot and Ankle is well organized and effective in its effort to promulgate MIS techniques for conditions affecting the foot and ankle. … readers will gain insight into how an international group of experts use avant garde techniques to address foot and ankle issues.” (Joseph A. Bosco III, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 306 (24), December, 2011)
