About this book

Over the past decade, minimally invasive techniques have developed rapidly and are widely applied in the management of spine disorders. With the development of enabling technologies, including specifically designed spinal retractor systems, intraoperative imaging and navigation technologies, and real-time neural monitoring, minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) techniques are safe, effective and reproducible. Indeed, studies have confirmed the clinical and economic advantages of these procedures.

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery includes detailed discussions of enabling technologies, surgical techniques (including posterior decompression and fusion), approaches to specific diseases and conditions, as well as strategies to manage the unique risks and complications of MISS. Generously illustrated, this will be an essential reference for orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons and all health care professionals who treat the spine.

Reviews

“This is one of the best books on MISS, Minimally invasive Spinal Surgery. … I highly recommend this book to orthopaedic, neurological, and trauma surgeons. It is a great value as an atlas of MISS with numerous line drawings and color anatomical figures and depictions.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, June, 2015)
