Osteotomies in the treatment of degenerative and posttraumatic arthritis seem to be a lost art. Even for young patients joint replacement is in vogue.

An international group of renowned surgeons present an outstanding hands-on approach to perform correction osteotomies in posttraumatic deformities from the clavicle to the foot.

Most of the content is based on case presentations and each case provides step-by-step description of case history, planning, surgical approach, osteotomy, fixation, rehabilitation, and finally pitfalls and pearls. Hundreds of full-color pictures, precise illustrations, and x-rays demonstrate the significant steps in deformity corrections. Long-term follow-ups demonstrate the efficacy of osteotomies in the treatment of malunions.

In the principle part preceding the case presentations relevant theoretical information on posttraumatic deformities and osteotomies, operative techniques, and fixation methods, as well as the formation of a surgical plan is provided. Overall the book features over 110 detailed case presentations.

This book should convince surgeons to use osteotomies in the treatment of posttraumatic deformities and consider joint-preserving techniques in the treatment of posttraumatic osteoarthritis.
