Orthopedic surgeons have made steady improvements in total hip
arthroplasty to improve safety and enhance surgical outcomes for
their patients. As such, surgeons and patients have focused on less
invasive surgical methods, at least for the past decade. This focus
has led to an interest in, and to the development of total hip
arthroplasty with the direct anterior surgical approach.The Direct
Anterior Approach to Hip Reconstruction is a definitive and
comprehensive reference text that addresses the above interest.
This resource is designed to help with introductory learning,
intermediate technical development, and advanced revision skills
using the direct anterior method.Drs. Sonny Bal, Lee Rubin, and
Kristaps J. Keggi have joined their unique perspectives, along with
those of a renowned group of experts in the expanding world of
anterior hip reconstructions surgery to create this reference. Dr.
Keggi was among the first to recognize and leverage the benefits of
the direct anterior approach in hip reconstruction; his 40-plus
years of experience as a clinician serve as the foundation for the
text.The Direct Anterior Approach to Hip Reconstruction provides a
stepwise progression for surgeons to learn how to perform total hip
arthroplasty using the direct anterior approach, with detailed
chapters and video instruction from an internationally renowned
group of expert authors.The chapters are structured to focus on the
art of using the direct anterior approach to address a variety of
hip pathology, such as femoroaetabular impingment, pediatric
operations, revision implant surgery, and others. The unique
applications of the direct anterior approach within the fields of
pediatrics, trauma, reconstruction, and tumor surgery are
highlighted, along with chapters focused on femoroacetabular
impingment, hip preservation surgery, and postoperative
rehabilitation protocols designed to improve patient outcomes.The
final section of the book reviews the evidence-based outcomes
related to direct anterior total hip arthroplasty, addresses the
evolving implant design concepts specific to this approach, and
outlines directions for educating the next generation of residents
and fellows who will continue to develop and refine these
techniques. Complementing the written text is a website that
provides access to educational videos to further enhance the
learning experience.What Is Inside:Basic concepts: Surgical hip
anatomy, patient selection, and placement of incisions for primary
total hip arthroplastyIntermediate concepts: Adoption of imaging
and navigation technologies, use of traction tables to enhance
positioning, and presentation of unique instruments and custom
devices that have evolved specifically for the direct anterior
approachAdvanced concepts: Using the direct anterior approach for
bearing and liner exchanges, acetabular revisions, and femoral
component revisionsTo date, no other single reference has addressed
a comprehensive education for the orthopedic resident, fellow, or
surgeon seeking to learn about the direct anterior approach for hip
reconstruction. This resource should be of value to orthopedic
