Patellofemoral Disorders
Diagnosis and Treatment
edited by
Roland Biedert

Patellofemoral Disorders looks at the various diagnostic techniques currently available, cites examples of unsuccessful treatments and proposes the most appropriate ones on the proven basis of the latest research.

The core of Patellofemoral Disorders is the 20 case studies ranging from simple non-operative treatment to multi-operated patients with salvage procedures.

The underlying theme of Patellofemoral Disorders is that treatment of patellofemoral problems must, in the first instance, be somewhat conservative.

Surgical interventions should be performed in a response to a clear underlying pathology and only after non-operative treatment has failed.

Patellofemoral Disorders is enhanced by the inclusion of some superb specially drawn illustrations and numerous colour photographs in the case studies section.
