New York/Stuttgart – Few would argue that spinal medicine has emerged as a mature and semi-independent specialty. Back pain runs second, after only the common cold, as the top reason for visiting a health care provider in the United States. Given that spinal problems are often complex and require a detailed workup, physicians need a reference that provides comprehensive guidance on the decision-making process for treating patients with spinal conditions.
Updated and expanded to reflect current management strategies and new technologies, “Decision Making in Spinal Care, Second Edition” will enable residents, fellows, spine surgeons, and associated clinicians in orthopedic surgery and neurosurgery to quickly access the information they need to make the right decisions in treating typical spinal conditions. It covers the spectrum of diagnoses seen in a typical spinal practice, from trauma injuries to metabolic and degenerative diseases to spinal deformities.
“We believe that this text will make a substantial impact on a reader’s understanding of spinal conditions in a concise and efficient manner and we dedicate this effort to those who strive to provide the highest quality care to patients with spinal conditions." – From the Preface
