About this book


This unique text utilizes a bulleted, case-based approach to present a variety of surgical strategies and techniques for tackling the many challenges posed by revision foot and ankle surgery.The book is organized thematically into sections on the forefoot, trauma, sports injuries, and arthritis and reconstruction, with each chapter including key takeaway points, discussions of evaluation, surgical planning, and the cases themselves. Specific revision topics presented include first MTP joint fusion, failed bunion and hammertoe, failed Lisfranc and fifth metatarsal fracture, failed flatfoot and subtalar fusion, and nonunion of ankle fusion and failed total ankle replacement, among others. 

The challenge of revision foot and ankle surgery is that there are countless ways for a surgery to fail. Therefore, presenting as many different scenarios as possible and techniques to address them is the main advantage of the book. Practical and user-friendly, Revision Surgery of the Foot and Ankle will prove indispensable to both the young and veteran orthopedic surgeon preparing for these challenging surgical interventions.

“The book is intended to be the ‘go-to’ reference for early-career foot and ankle surgeons. … The book will also be of benefit to the more seasoned general orthopedist who may encounter revision procedures from time to time. … this book makes a sizeable dent in the subspecialty of revision surgery of the foot and ankle and is to be recommended.” (Martin C. Yorath, Doody's Book Reviews, March 5, 2021)
