  • Thorough descriptions of preoperative evaluation and medical optimization of the patient
  • Chapters covering such important topics as pediatric management, multidisciplinary approaches to rehabilitation and recovery, socioeconomic issues, and ethical issues
  • Summary tables that synthesize the literature and provide an overview of treatment options
  • More than 130 high-quality illustrations demonstrating key concepts
  • Guiding clinicians from assessment through rehabilitation, this book presents a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach that will enable neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, trauma and emergency specialists, and residents in these specialties to optimize patient care.
