Praise for this book:

Overall, this book provides little opportunity for criticism and is a gold mine of
quick reference material and user-friendly illustrations.--Journal of NeuroInterventional Surgery

Drawing on the experience of leaders in both neurosurgery and orthopedic surgery, Handbook of Spine Surgery is authoritative, concise, and portable, designed for use in a fast-paced clinical setting. Its coverage of both principles and techniques of contemporary spine surgery, including anatomy, pathology, procedures, and instrumentation, makes it highly useful as a refresher before surgery, an easily digestible study guide, or a daily companion for physicians caring for patients with spinal disorders.

Key Features:

* An easy-to-read, bullet-style format that provides readable but not overwhelming content
* Surgical Pearls that tap into the experiences of surgeons who have mastered that procedure
* Common Clinical Questions (with answers) at the end of each chapter that highlight topics frequently encountered in the operating room and on board exams
* Superb visual examples that illuminate the procedures described
* Helpful appendices that cover positioning, spinal orthoses, and scales and outcome measures

A first-of-its-kind, this handbook is designed to be the go-to guide for those conducting and involved in surgical spine treatment.
