Book Description

Hip Preservation Techniques explores hip problems and presents and compares alternative protocols for treating the condition in children, adolescents, young adults, and adults. While poor long-term outcomes of arthroplasty have led to an increasing dependence on procedures to conserve the native hip, preservation surgery may maintain or protect a hip and prevent or delay the need for arthroplasty. Well-established techniques such as cartilage restoration and use of tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells are presented, and conceptually different procedures such as Bernese peri-acetabular osteotomy, Salter’s and Pemberton’s osteotomy are also discussed. This book will be useful for medical students, residents and consultants with an interest in hip preservation surgery.

Dr K. Mohan Iyer did his MCPS (1971) from the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Mumbai, India; MBBS (1971) from the University of Mumbai; D’Orth. and FCPS Orth. (1975) from the College of Physicians and Surgeons; MS Orth. (1978) from the University of Mumbai; and M. Ch. Orth. (1981) from the University of Liverpool, UK. During this time, he wrote three theses on fractures of the patella, excision arthroplasty of the elbow, and excision of the trapezium for carpometacarpal arthritis of the thumb.


Hip Preservation Techniques has been edited laboriously by Dr. K. Mohan Iyer. This book is a comprehensive guide on various preservation techniques of the hip to provide comfort to the patients (especially the younger ones) and to avoid or alleviate the need for arthroplasty, shortly.This book covers a wide variety of surgical procedures of the hip, to conserve or preserve the hip joint in younger patients, such as cartilage restoring techniques, mesenchymal cell therapy, hip arthroscopy, minimally invasive, and open procedures. This is a comfortable read with numerous illustrations and is useful for the medical and postgraduate student, clinicians, and researchers.
