  • Provides descriptions, by master surgeons, of technically demanding techniques and related complications
  • Imparts up-to-date knowledge that cannot be learned in conventional textbooks
  • Includes abundant colored illustrations that will help readers to understand the different surgical techniques
This book describes in detail the spine surgery techniques favored by those who are recognized as master spine surgeons by their peers and clearly identifies the potential complications. A major strength of the volume is the quality of the illustrations, which are designed to help the practitioner to deal with difficult but common problems encountered in spine practice. Surgical procedures on all parts of the spine are covered, encompassing cervical spine surgery, techniques for the treatment of scoliosis and other spinal deformities, minimally invasive surgery in degenerative lumbar disease, spinal tumor surgery, and procedures in patients with spinal injuries (for whom new classifications and novel approaches are described). Attention is also devoted to the relevant basic science with a view to promoting further cutting-edge research into spine disorders. The book will be an invaluable source of knowledge and assistance on technically demanding procedures in spinal surgery.​
