Overview

This comprehensive reference provides essential clinical information for planning and performing the full spectrum of anterior spine surgeries. Here, in one convenient volume, you’ll receive expert, step-by-step guidance in both open and endoscopic procedures, as well as instruction in relevant anatomy, instrumentation, and underlying principles.

The book is divided into three general sections and covers a host of common and rare cervical, thoracic, and lumbar diseases requiring anterior access. Individual chapters within each section bring you straight into the operating room with detailed descriptions of specific surgical techniques.

Together with Dr. Zdeblick and other widely recognized surgeons such as Drs. Paul Anderson and John Regan, you’ll examine specific cases, review pertinent indications, weigh treatment options, select appropriate approaches, and deal with any complications that arise during the course of surgery. Along the way, you’ll not only garner concrete technical knowledge that applies directly to your daily practice, but also pick up valuable tips that will help you optimize outcomes and avoid pitfalls in the OR.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: E. Quinn Regan, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a text on anterior spinal surgery — cervical, thoracic, and lumbar.
Purpose: It is intended to include in one text anterior applications to the spine.
Audience: It is written for the spinal surgeon, orthopedic surgeon, or neurosurgeon.
Features: This is a reference text to be used when the surgeon decides that the anterior approach to a spinal disorder is optimal. It is well organized from cervical to lumbosacral spine. It could have used better anatomical illustrations of cadavers or actual surgical exposures.
Assessment: This book will be a good addition to the library of the surgeon who does anterior surgery and wants one reference text. Good anatomical descriptions of the approaches are given as are new laparoscopic techniques.
From the Publisher

"[T]his book has drawn together all the standard and new anterior approaches to the spine in a single text, and this alone makes it a valuable reference book ... this is a very worthwhile investment and certainly something I would have appreciated 10 or 15 years ago."
