This book describes a number of the better established and accepted minimally invasive surgical correction techniques for forefoot problems. The concise written text is complemented by a generous assortment of useful photos, diagrams, and imaging studies.
With this proliferation of arthroscopy and other minimally invasive approaches due to the greater demands for day case surgery, there is much interest among orthopedic surgeons for quick reference guides to assist with minimally invasive techniques. Describing the techniques and, importantly, the indications for minimally invasive procedures for the management of forefoot disorders, this book will explain the management of various conditions and how they can be approached using minimally invasive techniques. However, rather than only concentrating on minimally invasive surgery of the forefoot, the book will examine the options open to surgeons operating in this area – both open surgical and arthroscopic – and explaining the benefits of each. Extensive radiographs, diagrams, and intra-operative pictures will illustrate the procedures described.
