From deformities to spinal tumors, the text facilitates a greater understanding of surgical nuances and potential complications encountered in standard to complex cases.

Updated pain management content encompasses varied strategies including injections, steroids, and nerve blocks.

  • Online access to 40 videos in which surgeon-authors share personal tips and demonstrate how to deftly navigate challenging, real life cases. Highlights include up close and personal footage shot in the OR and cadaver simulations
  • Greatly expanded section on minimally invasive technologies covers AxiaLIF, Presacral Interbody Fusion, SI Joint Fusion, and the use of both Robotics and Endoscopy

Up to date and comprehensive, this book is an outstanding resource for orthopedic and neurosurgical fellows and residents, as well as clinicians specializing in spine surgery.
