About the book

During the last decade, innovation in the process of Hip replacement has spawned marketing campaigns directed more toward attracting patients to a practice/hospital than educating them on the new options.
These issues are an important reason to continue publishing the evolution in total hip replacement. The book intends to provide education and helpful tools for future readers at any stage of their orthopedics specialty, providing the current state of the art/science of the practice of hip replacement, new material, new surgical techniques, rehabilitation protocols, pearls, and pitfalls.

These days, with the expectancy of life prolonged, it is mandatory to make that longer life comfortable. This pressure demands that every surgeon want every patient to be comfortable with their replacement and great outcomes. This book aims to present helpful tools to current and future surgeons to accomplish their goals by bringing a good quality of life to their loved patients.
