New York/Stuttgart –In this fourth volume in the AOSpine Masters Series, recently published by Thieme, experts from around the world share their strategies for managing the most common adult spinal deformities. This book gives clinicians the guidance they need to make the right treatment decisions and provide the best care for their patients. Chapter topics include osteotomies for rigid spinal deformities, postoperative coronal decompensation in adult deformity, and biomechanics and material science for deformity correction.

“We hope this book will help spine surgeons from around the world navigate the often controversial and complicated clinical issues involved in the management of ASD patients, so that the outcome can be maximized and the complications minimized..” – From the Preface by Lawrence G. Lenke, MD

All spine surgeons, orthopaedic surgeons, and neurosurgeons, along with residents and fellows in these areas, will find this book to be an excellent reference that they will consult often.

The AOSpine Masters Series, a co-publication of Thieme and the AOSpine Foundation, addresses current clinical issues whereby international masters of spine share their expertise and recommendations on a particular topic. The goal of the series is to contribute to an evolving, dynamic model of an evidence-based medicine approach to spine care.
