New York/Stuttgart - Caring for spinal conditions is a complicated process. There are many valid, reliable and responsive outcomes measures for virtually every spinal disease. The authors of Spine Classifications and Severity Measures recognized a few measures existed that attempted to characterize disease severity for some spine conditions. They took this initial list, watched it expand, then decided to create this one-of-a-kind reference text.

A separate book has been produced on this topic not only to accommodate the growing volume of measures but also to emphasize the importance and necessity of such measures in assisting the spine surgeon in making treatment decisions, evaluating treatment results, as well as communicating and exchanging information with other surgeons.

Spine Classifications and Severity Measures summarizes more than 185 spine classifications and disease severity measures. "Many of the included severity measures found in this book are useful and should be applied clinically. It is our desire that our review of these measures will assist the surgeon in the decision process," states author Jens R. Chapman, MD, professor in the department of Orthopaedics at the University of Washington in Seattle.

Divided into two sections focusing on disease severity and trauma severity, the text concisely and exhaustively covers topics such as osteoporosis, spinal deformity, spinal cord injury. This reference work adeptly assists students and medical professionals in studying spinal disease conditions, preparing informed treatment decisions, and caring for patients.
