Meniscal transplantation has become an attractive option in selected patients with incapacitating knee pain. This book discusses all aspects of meniscal transplantation, covering the use of both allografts and meniscal substitutes, including collagen and polyurethane implants. Acknowledged experts in the field review the basic science, explain indications, and describe surgical techniques and the results achieved to date. All the material is up to date, with information on new implants, new techniques, and new surgical approaches. Future trends in the treatment of meniscal lesions are also discussed as we move towards the application of regenerative strategies to restore meniscus function.

From the reviews:

"This textbook monograph is about the minimally invasive approach to knee surgery. ... The book is geared to the orthopaedic surgeon already familiar with knee menisci techniques and procedures. Therefore, I highly recommend this book to that particular audience." (Joseph J. Grenier,, December, 2013)

"This book does an excellent job of summarizing the current state of meniscal replacement surgery. It is a truly unique book, with a relative paucity of publications focusing on this advanced surgical technique. Background and basic science that is clinically relevant are presented, indications are clearly defined, and surgical techniques are well illustrated and logically laid out. This book would be very beneficial to orthopedic surgeons considering meniscal transplantation in their own clinical practice." (James P. Leonard, Doody's Book Reviews, December, 2013)
