Arthroscopy has become the major tool for orthopaedic surgeons fixing ligament problems in almost every anatomic joint in the human body. The previous editions of this book were heavy into basic science and attempted to cover all of the anatomic joints. The sales have decreased from about 5,500 to 3,000. I talked to a number to young orthopaedic surgeons to try to find out why. Basically, the answer was the book was not practical enough. There was too much basic science and not enough step-by-step how-to-do-it information. Also, the book covered procedures that are now done by subspecialists, especially in the hand, foot, and spine. Based on those reviews, we reorganized the book. We reduced the basic science to the essentials and completely removed chapters on history and ethics. We reorganized the chapter format to focus on how-to-do-it material. We brought on some rising stars as editors. The anatomic areas now covered are those that the sports medicine specialist will typically handle.
