From one of the world's leading orthopaedic surgeons comes the standard-setting text/atlas on functional reconstruction of the foot and ankle. Dr. Hansen describes the most successful surgical procedures for repairing fractures, traumatic injuries, and other problems. Emphasis is on restoring normal anatomy and optimal function. The first two sections present in-depth discussions of the general principles of acute trauma, fracture, and reconstructive surgery. The third section is a comprehensive surgical atlas that visually documents in step-by-step detail specific operative techniques, including arthrodesis, osteotomy, tendon transfers, muscle-balancing techniques, capsulorrhaphy and capsulotomy, and miscellaneous techniques. More than 1,100 illustrations complement the text.
