This book is a comprehensive review of the subject of knee surgery with particular emphasis on the reconstruction of knee injuries. The book covers the topics of meniscal, ligament and articular cartilage injuries, their diagnosis, investigation and treatment options. The book specifically addresses the difficult and controversial areas of such surgery with descriptions of the different treatment options, extensive literature review, review of the reported success and details of surgical techniques. The authors are drawn from a wide range of backgrounds with surgeons from the USA, the UK and Europe but also from Australia. The book also provides expert and essential backgrounds to some of the difficult topics in knee surgery by bioengineers and basic scientists.
