Details

Unlike the western world, where primary osteoarthritis of the hip is a very common condition, in our circumstances, indications for a primary total hip arthroplasty are very different. Likewise, the patient demands and expectations too are extremely different, because a European patient seldom squats or sits cross legged. Since Sr John Charnley invented this procedure in the sixties,more than twenty million hips have been replaced worldwide, and have lasted for thirty years or longer, making it a rewarding and extremely gratifying procedure,both  or the patient and the surgeon. However,complications when they happen,are often disastrous and leave the patient crippled. The difference between a hip that lasts for thirty years and that which dislocates in two weeks, is essentially more dependent on the exactness of the surgical technique, rather than the type of implant used or method of fixation employed. This book teaches you the basics and the nitty gritty of the total hip replacement procedure in a simple storybook style. Profusely illustrated with “Netter style” drawings, painted by the author himself, this book is a pleasure to read and a treasure trove of knowledge. Untainted by commerce, and without promoting a specific brand or design, the author has laid bare the essential tricks, that will help you to plan and execute this procedure flawlessly. Dr L.Prakash has shared his thirty years of experience as an arthroplasty surgeon, and written this book, which will be extremely useful to anyone performing this fascinating surgery.
