Item description for Total Knee Arthroplasty by Johan Bellemans Jan Victor...
"Take away my knee pain and give me better motion". This is what the arthritic patient expects from a Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA). By virtue of standardization of the TKA procedure, surgeons can nowadays solve the pain issue for the majority of the patients. Restoration of function is a goal of a different order and forms the scope of this book. The editors confronted today's leading knee surgeons with the limitations of current surgical techniques and technology. They challenged them to define new thresholds of functional capacity after Total Knee Arthroplasty. "A Guide to Get Better Performance in TKA" describes the cutting edge in surgical techniques, prosthetic design and achievement of excellent function for these patients.

Everything You Wanted to Know About Knee Replacement, But Were Afraid To Ask Sep 25, 2005
A comprehensive collection of articles about the newer complexities of total knee arthroplasty (TKA), written by surgeons from around the world, and presented in a beautifully printed volume with excellent graphics and photographs.
Essential for all orthopedists, health care workers and physicians working with orthopedic patients, but also accessible to interested lay readers with an understanding of research methodology and medical terminology.
This book was written and edited by the surgeons who are on the leading edge of restoring the mobility of arthritic patients, allowing people who were previously disabled to return to normal and pain free function. It considers everything from cross cultural sitting customs to post operative exercise.
The contribution of these doctors to our aging society is highly significant, and their excellence is reflected in this outstanding work.
