About this Textbook

This book covers the content of European postgraduate spine surgery courses, using a case-based approach. It describes a stepwise solution to a real-world clinical problem and compares this with the best available evidence. It then provides suggestions on how to bridge the gap (if there is one) between standard of care and evidence-based medicine.

Spine Surgery: A Case-Based Approach is aimed at postgraduate students of spine surgery (both trainee neurosurgeons and trainee orthopedic surgeons), and is also of interest to medical students.

Reviews

“The book is written for trainees, but it serves well as a reference for seasoned attendings looking for in‐depth knowledge of a certain topic. It certainly meets and exceeds the expectations for the intended audience. … This is a high‐quality publication that deserves a spot on everyone's bookshelf.  It is very useful to trainees who wish to understand the decision‐making process and algorithms for most spinal pathology.” (Cristian Gragnaniello, Doody's Book Reviews, August 02, 2019)
