“I was enormously impressed by this book, and the entire series. AANA is the leading organization in arthroscopic education and its primary mission is to advance the field of arthroscopy and improve patient care using this tool. AANA has educated thousands of surgeons through its meetings, educational offerings, and hands-on courses. It has recruited the most talented and dedicated educators in the field to serve as editors of each volume in the series. These editors, in turn, bring together the best of the best to author each chapter while ensuring that they maintain their focus on efficiency and excellence. The quality of this volume is excellent and is a great reference on its own. Be that as it may, I love the entire series.”
