Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: 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.
