Bone & Joint present An Illustrated History of Hip Joint Surgery, a new book written by John Kirkup

This book presents the long history of hip joint disability based on published evidence from the Hippocratic writings of the 4th century BC to the 21st century AD. Recognising this is a selective and summarised account of the story so far, it is hoped it will contribute to a more informed interpretation of the progression of hip surgery.





This book is available to purchase for £25.
