New York/Stuttgart – According to the National Center for Health Statistics, nearly one million spinal surgeries are performed each year in the United States alone. New surgeons in the neurosurgery and orthopedic surgery specialties are constantly being trained to meet the significant demands of back pain and other spine pathologies. For the resident-in-training, it is not practical to carry around a big heavy text, so Thieme has recently published the “Pocket Atlas of Spine Surgery.”
This small portable book specifically addresses the anatomy, technique, and indications of common approaches to the spine. Operative photos with unique anatomical overlays are provided for each step in a surgical procedure and illustrate for the reader critical landmarks in the operative site. The procedures included represent those most encountered in a typical spine surgery practice.
“The innovative manner of providing a clear anatomic description of the ‘target spine anatomy,’ as well as the layers of dissection required to get there, is absolutely brilliant and highly instructive... I congratulate Dr. Singh and Dr. Vaccaro for their efforts on this most practical and useful atlas.” - from the Foreword by Dr. Lawrence G. Lenke
Covering both open and minimally invasive techniques, this book will serve as a valuable resource to the field of spine surgery, particularly for those who have limited time for reading large texts, and it will facilitate quick reviews prior to surgery.
