About this book

This book discusses the full range of current applications of computer-assisted surgery and robotics in the field of knee surgery, and also considers potential future applications. The impact of computer-assisted surgery on a wide range of surgical procedures is clearly explained. Procedures considered include total knee arthroplasty, unicompartmental knee arthroplasty, cruciate ligament reconstruction, patellofemoral arthroplasty, and revision surgery. In each case, technical aspects are thoroughly addressed in a readily understandable manner. Knee Surgery Using Computer-Assisted Surgery and Robotics will be an ideal guide to this exciting field for both novice and more experienced surgeons who treat knee injuries and disorders.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is an in-depth and highly scientific review of computer-assisted and robotic surgery of the knee. … While most knee surgeons will find this book an interesting read, it will have the most impact on academics or surgeons trying to stay at the cutting edge of their specialty. … Fellows in adult reconstructive surgery and surgeons practicing adult reconstructive surgery will gain the most from it and find it most interesting. This is a unique offering dedicated to a very specialized area in orthopedic surgery.” (Mark R. Hutchinson, Doody’s Book Reviews, July, 2013)
