We were inspired to write this textbook by the increasing number of knee injuries in young athletes that we encounter daily in our practices. We believe that this textbook written with the support of international experts is an imperative and timely guide to the treatment of pediatric and adolescent knee injuries. The higher volume of knee injuries in the young athlete is multifactorial and includes, but is not limited to, increased participation in sports, higher levels of competition within youth sports, increased sports specialization, and societal factors. Historically, children and adolescents with anterior cruciate ligament tears or patellofemoral instability episodes as well as other knee injuries were often treated with benign neglect. With advances in the understanding of knee anatomy, pathomechanics, and the natural history of nonoperative treatment, our therapeutic guidelines have become more focused and specific. Much of this depends on the individual athlete, his or her skeletal age, his or her sport, and the particular injury pattern.

This textbook includes 41 chapters divided into several sections with a comprehensive approach to each of the pathologic entities written by experts in their respective areas. Section 1 is composed of 13 chapters focusing on the anterior cruciate ligament. These chapters concentrate on the epidemiology, biomechanics, gender, nonoperative treatments, and a menu of five specific operative techniques followed by guidelines that offer a decision tree for selecting proper treatment as predicated by skeletal age. This section concludes with the rehabilitation, movement analysis, return to play, and prevention components necessary to complete the management of these injured athletes. Section 2 includes 6 chapters that concentrate on patellofemoral instability with an introductory chapter, 4 chapters that discuss operative technique, and a chapter on rehabilitation of these athletes. Section 3 centers on osteochondritis dissecans, with 7 chapters including an overview as well as multiple surgical techniques and ending with a chapter discussing the frontiers of cartilage
