     Knee surgery remains one of the most dynamic of all the common procedures performed by orthopedists.  Whether a new technique was developed or alternative materials for knee replacement were introduced, Insall & Scott Surgery of the Knee has been dutifully adding advances in the field for several decades now.  The success of this title surely lies in its comprehensive nature and inclusion of information that might just be a step before its time which turns out to be quite useful over the print lifetime of the current edition.  Whatever individual surgeons like most about this title, it can be said that there are many surgeons who have adopted this title as one of the few they keep in their office.

     This 5th edition seems to be written with the same core objectives that those preceding it were developed upon, namely strong foundational coverage with an eye toward future practice.  The first section of the book on the basic science of the knee begins the process of setting this book apart from its competitors.  The reader is immersed in the anatomy of the knee in the sense that MRI, photographs and colored illustrations are used in combination to bring anatomical relationships to the forefront.  These relationships, which are so important to surgical technique, are often left almost solely to textual description in other texts on knee surgery.  The editors have done well to emphasize the anatomy of the knee in the basic science section rather than only in the context of various procedures.  Other aspects of foundational knowledge in orthopedic surgery that are particularly well represented are the various chapters on anterior cruciate ligament repair and revisions which are some of the most commonly performed procedures in the field. 

     For those surgeons who are actively involved in the use of robotic assistance during joint replacement, there is plentiful information in this text which is one of the areas which the editors look toward the future.  The robotic option is looked at from an objective viewpoint and even those surgeons not currently using this technique, whether due to access or choice, will be able to take a fresh look at developments in this area.

     Readers are also able to go beyond the textbook and peruse a vast array of videos showing a selection of knee procedures.  There are also a number of book chapters which are strictly online content and are marked so within the book by a computer mouse icon, although a complete outline of the chapter is included in the print version.  This goes a long way in providing much additional coverage which would not have been allowed for within a one volume cover.  Being a single volume facilitate its use as a reference along with the online access.  For those interested in staying up to date with the newly manufactured implants, the online content also contains a handy table of those materials as well.

     From trainee to experienced surgeon, Insall and Scott Surgery of the Knee 5th Edition is an excellent choice for a reference on the knee that can be turned to again and again over the years.  Those highly focused on subspecialty areas of knee surgery, such as cartilage repair will still find a good basic reference but will certainly need additional volumes for their specific purposes.  All in all, this is an excellent value for the sheer amount of information at your fingertips.
