Overview

Prepared by the Cervical Spine Research Society, this comprehensive surgical atlas demonstrates the full range of operative techniques for treating cervical spine disorders. Internationally renowned experts provide thoroughly illustrated step-by-step instructions on patient preparation, approaches to the cervical spine, and all current decompression, graft, fixation, and stereotactic techniques.

The consistent chapter organization allows easy access to information. Chapters on approaches cover limits of exposure; anatomy; dangers; perioperative considerations; operating room setup; instruments; positioning; skin incisions; deep dissection; closure; and postoperative management. Chapters on techniques cover indications/contraindications; benefits/limitations; recommended approach; perioperative considerations; operating room setup; instruments; biomechanical considerations; technique; and postoperative management.
