Total hip arthroplasty, or hip replacement, is a surgical procedure in which the hip joint is replaced by a prosthetic implant. It is one of the most common orthopaedic operations.

Modern Techniques in Total Hip Arthroplasty is a step by step guide to hip replacement for orthopaedic surgeons. Beginning with an introduction to the technique and its early development, the following chapters examine every surgical approach for total hip replacement, from basic procedures to complex techniques.

Each technique is presented in a systematic manner, describing the process itself, indications, contraindications, and possible complications.

Written by recognised California-based expert Ran Schwarzkopf, this practical book is highly illustrated with clinical photographs, radiograph and illustrations to help surgeons visualise each step of the procedure.
