About this book

Don’t miss it! The second, completely revised and expanded edition of the successful surgical manual on minimally invasive spine surgery includes 51 chapters (including more than 20 new chapters) covering all current minimally invasive techniques in spine surgery. A complete survey of all microsurgical and endoscopic techniques with a special focus on semi-invasive injection techniques for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes in low back pain is given. The clear chapter structure with terminology, history, surgical principles, advantages/disadvantages, indications, access principles, complications, and results facilitates navigation through the manual. Topics include the principles of microsurgical and endoscopic treatment, spinal navigation and computer-assisted surgery, minimally invasive reconstruction, fusion, dynamic stabilization in fractures, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, low back pain and deformities. The didactic presentation of surgical steps makes the reader familiar with all types of new minimally invasive techniques in clinical use or still in ongoing clinical trials such as minimally invasive spine arthroplasty.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

The book covers almost all commonly used minimally invasive surgical procedures. The first section deals with the microscope and operating room setup. Challenging procedures of the cervical spine include a detailed technique for treating the odontoid fracture, microsurgical total cervical disc replacement, and microsurgical stabilization of C1-2 fusion. Microsurgical approaches and endoscopic principles are very well covered for the thoracic and lumbar spine. A section on disc reconstruction describes cutting-edge procedures such as autologous chondrocyte transplantation and nucleus pulposus replacement. Spinal stenosis, spinal fusions, and dynamic stabilizations are described in detail. The book is well illustrated and referenced by the authors. Photos showing the position of the patient on the operating table are most useful....This is perhaps the best book written on the subject. I very highly recommend it to all spine surgeons and orthopedic and neurosurgical trainees. (5 Stars Doody's review by Edward Abraham)

"This is an excellent book! Edited by H. Michael Mayer, it is a multiauthor mix of European, American, Swiss and Australian, but predominantly German and North American current and cutting edge spinal practice. It is remarkable that in less than 500 pages … the entirety of spinal surgery from trans-oral odontoidectomy to low lumbar dynamic stabilisation can be summarised so eloquently and comprehensively. … this book should be essential reading for every spinal surgeon and occupy a prominent place in every departmental library." (Barrie D. White, Acta Neurochirurgica, Vol. 148 (6), 2006)

"This is the second edition of a book that puts great effort into covering all aspects of minimally invasive surgery of the spine (MISS). … The individual chapters are thoroughly structured and easy to overview. The illustrations are generally of high quality … . the book is so well written and well structured that it is a pleasure to read it from beginning to end. … This excellent book is a must for everyone interested in spine surgery … ." (Björn Strömqvist, Acta Orthopaedica, Vol. 77 (4), 2006)
