Hip Surgery: An Odyssey

by Augusto Sarmiento

The book, Hip Surgery: An Odyssey, is simply a recollection of personal experiences of Augusto Sarmiento about hip surgery over nearly half a century. he narrative dwells, in various degrees, with ideas and procedures that have, thus far, either survived the test of time or have vanished from the scene. The book states that total hip arthroplasty represents one of the most important and impressive technological developments in the history of orthopedics and one that still attracts the attention of the orthopedist. Augusto Sarmiento has structured this book in a manner that identifies the likely reasons for the failures of so many different approaches to the “hip problem” hoping that enthusiasm of surgeons with new techniques will be tempered by the lessons of history.
