While current advances in arthroscopy have made it the procedure of choice for diagnosing joint injuries and diseases, these same advances have made procedures themselves more complex. Profiling the principle techniques of arthroscopy, Atlas of Arthroscopic Techniques provides visual reinforcement of experience gained in the operating room. A straightforward guidebook, the text explains various procedures and the necessary set-up for proper arthroscopy.
Pioneers in the field, Drs. Beach and Whipple have been instrumental in developing arthroscopic techniques over the last 20 years. Broad in scope, the book covers basic and advanced topics and includes a section on pitfalls and complications for each procedure, and addresses those issues according to anatomy. These features combine to make this book accessible to the novice and useful to the more experienced surgeon.
