Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Foot and Ankle represents a novel approach to treatment of orthopedic problems in the foot and ankle. The gradual change of philosophy in the management of foot and ankle surgery means that patients require a less invasive approach to surgery and a consequent improvement in recovery time. Describing the techniques and, importantly, the indications for minimally invasive procedures for the management of foot and ankle ailments, this book will explain the management of various conditions and how they can be approached using minimally invasive techniques. However, rather than only concentrating on minimally invasive surgery of the foot and ankle, the authors will be examining the options open to surgeons operating in this area - both open surgical and arthroscopic - and explaining the benefits of each. Extensive radiographs, diagrams, and intra-operative pictures will illustrate the procedures described.

From the reviews:

"This 400-page book describes arthroscopic and endoscopic management of various foot and ankle difficulties and injuries. ... The intended audience includes orthopedic surgeons and other healthcare professionals involved ... with foot and ankle decompression. ... This book is dedicated to a relatively recent surgical technique. Arthroscopic surgery on the knee, shoulder, and hip has been used for many years, but its use in foot surgery is in the developing stages and this book provides a good reference. ... a good addition to the orthopedic literature." (Riad Barmada, Doody's Review Service, August, 2011)

"The book is organized into 6 parts, each based on a different anatomical location. ... This method of organization is both effective and user friendly. ... Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Foot and Ankle is well organized and effective in its effort to promulgate MIS techniques for conditions affecting the foot and ankle. ... readers will gain insight into how an international group of experts use avant garde techniques to address foot and ankle issues." (Joseph A. Bosco III, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 306 (24), December, 2011)
