This comprehensive surgical textbook is a first-edition compendium of the author's approach to foot and ankle problems. The book is written in the first person, as if Dr. Myerson were talking to the reader. The list of foot and ankle techniques is very complete, and novel surgical solutions to these problems are included. Video clips in a DVD format serve as a supplement to twenty-nine of the surgical techniques.Approximately 25% of the text addresses forefoot pathology, bunions, sesamoid disorders, and corrections of lesser toe disorders. Another 25% is dedicated to arthritis surgery, including triple, tarsometatarsal, and ankle arthrodeses as well as arthrodesis of the hindfoot. A number of alternative options for these arthritic conditions are described and include, for example, ankle replacement surgery. The remaining approximately 50% of the text covers surgical techniques for flat, diabetic, cavus, or paralytic feet, and correction of nerve entrapment syndromes and sports tendon and/or ligament injuries of the foot and ankle.
