"Drs. Sonny Bal, Lee Rubin, and Kristaps J. Keggi have joined their unique perspectives, along with those of a renowned group of experts in the expanding world of anterior hip reconstructions surgery to create this reference. Dr. Keggi was among the first to recognize and leverage the benefits of the direct anterior approach in hip reconstruction; his 40-plus years of experience as a clinician serve as the foundation for the text. The Direct Anterior Approach to Hip Reconstruction provides a stepwise progression for surgeons to learn how to perform total hip arthroplasty using the direct anterior approach, with detailed chapters and video instruction from an internationally renowned group of expert authors. The chapters are structured to focus on the art of using the direct anterior approach to address a variety of hip pathology, such as femoroaetabular impingment, pediatric operations, revision implant surgery, and others. The unique applications of the direct anterior approach within the fields of pediatrics, trauma, reconstruction, and tumor surgery are highlighted, along with chapters focused on femoroacetabular impingment, hip preservation surgery, and postoperative rehabilitation protocols designed to improve patient outcomes. The final section of the book reviews the evidence-based outcomes related to direct anterior total hip arthroplasty, addresses the evolving implant design concepts specific to this approach, and outlines directions for educating the next generation of residents and fellows who will continue to develop and refine these techniques. Complementing the written text is a website that provides access to educational videos to further enhance the learning experience. "--Provided by publisher.
