Innovative methods from pioneering spine surgeons - in one concise edition!

Spinal surgery is a rapidly evolving frontier, and physicians need to master new treatment options as quickly as possible. This complete summary provides step-by-step explanations of virtually all major spinal procedures, as described by the experts who perfected them. Each chapter pinpoints the most frequent complications encountered by the authors, and follows a "how I do it" approach to avoiding them.

Divided by anatomical region, the book starts with techniques for the cervical spine, then goes on to cover the thoracic and lumbar spine. Topics include:
cervical laminoplasty; posterior column shortening for Scheuermann's Kyphosis; correction of neuromuscular pelvic obliquity; total lumbar disc replacement; and many more.
