Atlas of Minimally Invasive Hand and Wrist Surgery
by John T. Capo

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.

Atlas of 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.

Atlas of Minimally Invasive Hand and Wrist Surgery describes nearly forty procedures, with step-by-step details and abundant illustrations, all contributed by the leading international experts who are pioneering these new approaches.
