From a world-famous pioneer in arthroscopic shoulder surgery comes the first step-by-step "how-to" guide to advanced techniques in shoulder arthroscopy. Dr. Burkhart describes the innovative techniques and instruments he has devised to solve the most difficult surgical problems and offers dozens of tips, tricks, and pearls you won't find in any other book. More than 900 full-color arthroscopic and clinical photographs and numerous drawings complement the text.
The first section explains the principles that underlie successful operative shoulder arthroscopy. The second section gives step-by-step, bulleted instructions and "tricks and tips" for 70 arthroscopic procedures.
A bound-in DVD contains 4 hours of video showing the 70 procedures. Each procedure in the text correlates exactly to the video.
