Overcome any clinical challenge in adult hip surgery withThe Adult Hip. In this monumental three-volume orthopaedics reference, a “who’s who” of preeminent authorities address every aspect of open and arthroscopic hip surgery, equipping you to effectively manage a full range of adult hip surgery patients and achieve optimal outcomes.“The Third Edition of The Adult Hip provides remarkable opportunities for the reader. A full volume on hip preservation surgery is the most comprehensive reference on the subject ever brought together. In the other two volumes the reader can pick and choose between well-organized foundational material on important topics such as the history of hip surgery, hip anatomy, operative approaches, biomechanics, biomaterials, hip pathology, and state-of-the-art material on today’s hottest topics such as hip exposures, taper corrosion, and the latest management of difficult challenges in primary and revision hip surgery. The new edition also covers new topics that have become increasingly important to hip surgeons in recent years: quality, outcomes measurements, cost and value.”– from the Foreword by Daniel J.
