As one of the leading specialists in hip arthroscopies, Dr. Joseph McCarthy's proposed text Early Hip Disorders promises to become a definitive addition to the field. Featuring full color, arthroscopic views and contributions from such prestigious figures in the orthopaedic community as John McGinty, Richard Villar and James Bono, this text will cover all the essentials of hip arthroscopy including: examiniations, arthroscopic procedures for loose bodies, labral injuries, defects of the femoral head and acetabulum, treatment for infections, tumors, differential diagnosis and, most uniquely, a section on pediatric hip injuries. In addition, this text will provide the surgeon with detailed analysis of cost considerations and comparison with open hip procedures as well as outcome analysis. This text is a must- have for any orthopaedic surgeon interested in learning the newest procedures in the treatment of hip injuries and providing their patients with the safest, most effective treatment available
