Expert Techniques in Spine Surgery – Original PDF
“Expert Techniques in Spine Surgery” consists of 12 well-selected chapters, covering essential techniques in cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine surgery with an emphasis on skillful surgical techniques and considerations. Each chapter follows a reproducible format with (1) an in-depth review of the relevant anatomy; (2) a thorough discourse of specific indications and contraindications for the procedure; (3) a methodical instructional guide for how to master the technique with a variety of special caveats that only the most experienced surgeons are aware of; (4) the most up-to-date discussion of outcomes that validate the use of these contemporary techniques; (5) an extensive guide to potential complications that may arise intraoperatively and perioperatively; (6) a well-crafted case presentation to tie concepts together; and (7) a variety of detailed imaging and illustrations to visually guide readers through the complexities of each technique. This anthology of complex spinal techniques has been carefully crafted as a teaching tool for medical students, orthopedic residents, spine fellows, and young spine attendings, in a collective effort to improve the administration of complex spine care to patients around the world.
