"The last 20 years have produced a great deal of new information on cartilage injuries, diseases, and degeneration. Many new procedures and implants have been introduced to repair, reconstruct, and produce normal cartilage. This book provides orthopedic surgeons detailed technical instructions on many procedures used in cartilage surgery. Easy to read with informative illustrations, it is a good addition to the orthopedic literature." - Riad Barmada, MD(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine), Doody’s review service
