"As the number of primary total joint arthroplasties has increased exponentially in recent years, there has been a similar increase in the number of revisions. This book provides an expert, organized approach for dealing with these revision cases. Each chapter addresses a specific issue that has led to the failure of the implant and then describes a direct, methodical approach to the revision surgical correction. The photographs reproduce nicely. The diagrams and algorithms are particularly well conceived. The index is very thorough, an element that is frequently ignored."-Samuel J.
