About this book

Contemporary spinal surgeons, whether orthopedic or neurosurgeons, are increasingly recognizing minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) as a desirable option to manage advanced degenerative diseases. MISS techniques minimize blood loss, surgical site pain, and speed recovery. Thus, the marriage of MISS with adult spinal deformity was a natural one. Currently, the techniques, technologies, and education of surgeons have finally reached a point where MISS deformity surgeries are becoming commonplace. Nevertheless, the field is young enough that no comprehensive texts have addressed the unique challenges faced by surgeons exploring this evolving field. This book will fill the gap.

Reviews

“It is a good reference guide for common MIS techniques that are routinely being applied to deformity surgery. … this book provides an excellent roadmap not only to what techniques exist but also to how the spine community should go about its evaluation.” (Alfred T. Ogden, Neurosurgery, Vol. 76 (6), June, 2015)

“Chapters describe concisely the technique, its indications and complications illustrated with intraoperative pictures or well drawn illustrations. … the book is a valuable completion of the library of each practising spinal surgeon, spine fellow, and senior resident, since several minimal invasive spinal operative techniques and radiological concepts are concisely described.” (Ronald Bartels, Acta Neurochirurgica, Vol. 157, January, 2015)
