New York/Stuttgart –Early Onset Scoliosis, recently published by Thieme, was inspired by the inaugural early onset scoliosis meeting of spine surgeons and other medical professionals in Christ Church, Oxford, UK, in September 2011. Many of those professionals, as well as other contributors, come together in this in-depth book to provide a complete picture of the field today. In Early Onset Scoliosis you will find topics ranging from spinal development and genetics to advances in medical management to breakthrough surgical techniques that offer promising new options for young patients.
- Provides practical, evidence-based solutions to managing the full range of congenital, idiopathic, neuromuscular and syndromic conditions that present in early onset scoliosis
- Describes pioneering surgical procedures, such as non-invasive, magnetically controlled growing rod systems that reduce the number of repetitive surgeries and hospitalizations
- Explores such complex topics as surgical strategies for sitting comfort and features of optimal wheelchair seating
Recognizing the importance of the multidisciplinary team approach in effective management, Early Onset Scoliosis offers the valuable international perspective of many leaders in the field. It is essential for orthopedic and pediatric surgeons, residents and trainees, who will use the book to develop a clear understanding of what EOS is, how it is best treated, and the principles that are behind effective clinical decision-making in these complex cases.
