Editorial Reviews

Review

It is a welcome resource for those training in spine surgery as well as a contemporary refresher before surgery.--AANS Young Neurosurgeons' Newsletter

The authors have been very successful in condensing many important aspects of spine surgery into a relatively small, portable paperback handbook.-- Journal of Neurosurgery

 

From the Back Cover

Praise for this book:

Overall, this book provides little opportunity for criticism and is a gold mine of
quick reference material and user-friendly illustrations.--Journal of NeuroInterventional Surgery

Drawing on the experience of leaders in both neurosurgery and orthopedic surgery, Handbook of Spine Surgery 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.

Key Features:

  • An easy-to-read, bullet-style format that provides readable but not overwhelming content
  • Surgical Pearls that tap into the experiences of surgeons who have mastered that procedure
  • Common Clinical Questions (with answers) at the end of each chapter that highlight topics frequently encountered in the operating room and on board exams
  • Superb visual examples that illuminate the procedures described
  • Helpful appendices that cover positioning, spinal orthoses, and scales and outcome measures

A first-of-its-kind, this handbook is designed to be the go-to guide for those conducting and involved in surgical spine treatment.

I am very dissapointed about this book. It was highly anticipated and a good idea to have a spine "Greenberg" type of handbook. Unfotunately , this book lacks alot of details. Alot of topics are superficially written. I recommend Spine Secret Plus as a nearly complete spine handbook instead of this book.

This book provides a great review of the anatomical considerations in spinal surgery. Read this as a fourth year medical student, would recommend it to others prior to sub-I, you'll come in ahead of many classmates.
