About the Book
"Knee injuries in children with tears of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and meniscus have increased dramatically over the past 12 years according to a CHOP study in 2011 and other injuries to the knee among children and adolescents are also on the rise. Pediatric and Adolescent Knee Surgery is intended to fill the reference gap for practitioners handling this increase. This will be a text aimed squarely at orthopedic surgeons. It will review anatomy, imaging, and epidemiology and detail procedures for ACL injuries, Patellofemoral Instability, Osteochondritis Dessicans, Discoid Meniscus, Fractures, and Growth Plate Surgery. Each technique will be richly illustrated and portrayed in step-by-step detail"--Provided by publisher.
