New York/Stuttgart, – “Handbook of Spine Surgery,” recently published by Thieme, is authoritative, concise, and portable – designed for use in a fast-paced clinical setting. Its coverage of both principles and techniques of contemporary spine surgery, including anatomy, pathology, procedures, and instrumentation, makes it highly useful as a refresher before surgery, an easily digestible study guide, or a daily companion for physicians caring for patients with spinal disorders.
"The discipline of spine surgery has evolved to encompass a wide range of diagnoses and procedures. The burden to efficiently review and apply these principles can be exhausting. With this in mind, we are happy to introduce the first edition of the Handbook of Spine Surgery, a practical handbook aimed at providing the resident, fellow, or staff with quick access to key points of common spinal diseases and management strategies.” says author Ali A. Baaj, MD, Instructor of Neurosurgery-Spine, the Department of Neurosurgery, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, Maryland.
A first-of-its-kind, this handbook is designed to be the go-to guide for those conducting and involved in surgical spine treatment.
