Modern Techniques in Spine Surgery

List Price: $173.00


Minimally invasive techniques are now the preferred method for spine surgery because the incision is much smaller, causing less damage to surrounding muscles, pain is usually greatly reduced, and recovery time is faster. This book is a practical guide to minimally invasive diagnostic and surgical techniques for spine operations. Beginning with an overview of spinal anatomy and the basics of minimally invasive surgery, the following chapters examine the management of numerous different spinal conditions. A complete chapter is dedicated to patients with spinal cord injury and rehabilitation. More than 200 clinical photographs, diagrams and tables enhance the comprehensive text, making it an invaluable resource for both trainees and practising  spine surgeons. Key points * Comprehensive guide to minimally invasive spine surgery * Covers diagnosis and treatment of numerous spinal disorders * Complete chapter dedicated to spinal injury and rehabilitation * Includes more than 200 photographs and illustrations.
