Description: One of the hallmarks of a master surgeon is the ability to
navigate a wide variety of inevitable difficult situations in surgery,
whether errors in judgment, technical mistakes, or unavoidable outcomes.
Under the leadership of series editor Dr. Stephen R. Thompson, the
Complications in Orthopaedics series provides real-world guidance on
recognizing and avoiding errors, as well as how to “course-correct”
during surgery. In this volume, Drs. P. Maxwell Courtney, Yale A.
Fillingham, and a team of expert surgeons describe the most common
errors and complications of adult reconstruction surgery, focusing on
the knee and hip and demonstrating practical solutions that are integral
to improving patient outcomes.
