Editorial Reviews

Review

“It is a good reference guide for common MIS techniques that are routinely being applied to deformity surgery. … this book provides an excellent roadmap not only to what techniques exist but also to how the spine community should go about its evaluation.” (Alfred T. Ogden, Neurosurgery, Vol. 76 (6), June, 2015)

“Chapters describe concisely the technique, its indications and complications illustrated with intraoperative pictures or well drawn illustrations. … the book is a valuable completion of the library of each practising spinal surgeon, spine fellow, and senior resident, since several minimal invasive spinal operative techniques and radiological concepts are concisely described.” (Ronald Bartels, Acta Neurochirurgica, Vol. 157, January, 2015)

From the Back Cover

Contemporary spinal surgeons, whether orthopedic or neurosurgeons, are increasingly recognizing minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) as a valuable option for managing advanced degenerative diseases. MISS techniques minimize blood loss and surgical site pain, while speeding recovery. Thus, the combination of MISS with adult spinal deformity was a natural choice. Currently, the techniques, technologies, and education of surgeons have finally reached a point where MISS deformity surgeries are becoming commonplace. Nevertheless, the field is young enough (and still evolving) that no comprehensive texts have addressed the unique challenges it poses for surgeons. This book fills that gap.
