This book is a comprehensive guide to the management of complex spine cases. Presented as a series of case studies, it brings together the experiences and knowledge of expert contributing specialists.
Divided into five sections - Early Onset Scoliosis, Pediatric Spinal Deformity, Adult Spinal Deformity, Trauma and Tumors, and Cervical Spine - each part explains numerous cases relevant to that topic, describing the challenges, techniques for management, and pitfalls, for each one.
Edited by highly experienced US-based spinal surgeons, including Alexander R Vaccaro from Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Pennsylvania, this practical reference is further enhanced by more than 500 illustrations.
