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
