About this item


third edition of this concise, essential spine handbook expands on the

previous edition, reflecting recent advances in the field. Written by

highly renowned spine surgeons, the new edition is presented in full

well-rounded perspective on surgical and nonsurgical management of

spine-related conditions and disease in adult and pediatric patients.

In the opening chapters, a solid clinical foundation is laid – covering

anatomy, physical examination, imaging and diagnostic testing,

biomechanics of the spine, and instrumentation.Clinical

information is summarized in an outline format, enabling readers to

peruse broad topics in an expeditious manner. Chapters are

categorically arranged, encompassing cervical, thoracic and lumbar

spine pathologies. Within the framework of trauma, degenerative

changes, congenital conditions, tumors, and infections – topics include

spinal cord injury, thoracolumbar spine fractures; lumbar disk disease,

stenosis, and spondylolisthesis; and spinal deformities in children and

adults. Rounding out the volume are chapters on tumors, infections, and

immune disorders that impact the spine such as rheumatoid arthritis and

seronegative spondyloarthropathies.Key features:

  • New chapters on surgical positioning and neuromonitoring
  • Updates on minimally invasive surgical techniques, bone physiology, and biologics
  • More than 300 beautiful illustrations presented in full-color
  • Key references offer more in-depth insight on topics
  • Succinct layout enables cover-to-cover reading and study prep for board examinations

handy resource is small enough to carry around during rounds and is

particularly useful for orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons in

training. The reader-friendly format also makes it an excellent

reference book for practicing spine surgeons and practitioners involved

in the nonsurgical management of spine conditions.
