Shoulder surgery is now firmly established as a subspecialty of orthopaedic surgery and is changing at a rapid pace. New developments have recently occurred, particularly in shoulder joint replacement and arthroscopy, which are evolving with respect to their indications, technique and design. Shoulder Surgery: An Illustrated Textbook focuses on standard treatment regimens used by orthopaedic surgeons with a particular interest in the shoulder. Surgical technique is described in detail, and each chapter also contains a comprehensive description of the aetiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment alternatives, all lavishly illustrated throughout. In addition the reader is provided with a complete list of references at the end of each chapter.
