Hand and wrist surgery is evolving rapidly and often, advances are directed at developing procedures that are less invasive, with smaller incisions and shorter rehabilitation times. Minimally Invasive Hand and Wrist Surgery is the only book devoted exclusively to these exciting new percutaneous and minimal access techniques for the treatment of chronic and traumatic conditions of the hand and wrist. Nearly forty procedures are described, with step-by-step details and abundant illustrations, all contributed by the leading international experts who are pioneering these new approaches.
