In 1990, Dr. Kenneth Krackow wrote The Technique of Total Knee Arthroplasty to teach the basics of TKA for end-stage arthritis-everything from nonsurgical to surgical intervention and postoperative rehabilitation. Now completely revised for a new generation of surgeons, the 2nd Edition of this classic text continues its original goal of helping advanced practitioners acquire more knowledge and skill in primary and revision total knee arthroplasty. This fully updated volume, revised by Dr. Krackow and his former fellows Drs. William M. Mihalko and Michael A. Mont, keeps you current with major changes and advances in field, including patient optimization, outpatient procedures, robotics and new technology, difficult decisions during surgery, and more.
