Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
This book is a clear and up-to date review of current "evidence based medicine" opinions on controversial issues in spine surgery. It's clear and gives you all necessary bibliographic references to enhance your comprehension on specific subjects: in this view it's more a guide than a real "surgical treaty", and I think this is in authors intention. Very useful for othopedic surgery and neurosurgery resident or young surgeon interested in spine surgery
