Drs. Cole and Malek, recognized leaders in the field, wrote this cutting-edge text to fill the void in the literature regarding the management of articular cartilage disease and meniscal deficiency. The book enables orthopedic surgeons to develop an evidence-based decision-making framework that guides the management of articular cartilage lesions. Carefully chosen contributors provide readers with a practical background in articular lesions, patient assessment, and management strategies. Subsequent chapters address the gamut of current surgical techniques, from arthroscopy and debridement to unicondylar arthroplasty, in a step-by-step manner. More than 500 detailed illustrations, many in color, help readers understand and master treatments. Case studies, which include preoperative planning and postoperative outcomes, reinforce the decision-making process. Nearly every permutation and treatment option is covered, making this text a prime resource for surgeons committed to exercising sound judgement
