New York/Stuttgart –This second volume in the AOSpine Masters Series, recently published by Thieme, balances critical appraisal of current evidence in spine oncology with the opinions of experienced spine surgeons to create a unique clinical reference for spine oncology surgeons. The chapters have been written and researched by key leaders in spine oncology and range from general evaluation, staging, and decision making principles to histology-specific oncologic patient management.
“The goal of this guide is to balance critical appraisal of current evidence in spine oncology with opinion from experienced experts, to create a distinctive and meaningful clinical reference.” – From the Preface
