Low back pain and sciatica may often be attributed to herniation of the lumbar intervertebral disc.
This book is a comprehensive guide to surgical procedures for the management of lumbar disc herniation. Divided into seven sections, the first few chapters discuss historical aspects and basics, and radiological investigations.
The following section provides in depth coverage surgical techniques for different lumbar spine disorders. Each procedure is described step by step, with intraoperative photographs and diagrams helping to explain the methodology. The final sections examine complications and follow up.
This invaluable manual is authored by internationally acclaimed spinal surgeons, and is commissioned by the World Federation of Neurological Societies (WFNS).
