Total Elbow Arthroscopy cover

Edited by Donald Lee, MD
Published by: American Society for Surgery of the Hand 

Shoulder and elbow arthroplasty, as with other surgical procedures, is an ever-evolving process. The purpose of the Shoulder and Elbow Arthroplasty publications is to provide an overview of the current state of shoulder and elbow arthroplasty. Both books are similarly structured and provide a historical review of past implants; pertinent surgical anatomy, indications, and approaches; currently available implants, surgical techniques, and rehabilitation; and finally, the results and complications of shoulder and elbow arthroplasty. Hopefully, these detailed insights will afford the reader a better understanding of the current state of shoulder and elbow arthroplasty. More information
