Overview

Curbside Consultation of the Spine: 49 Clinical Questions provides quick answers to the tricky questions most commonly posed during a "curbside consultation" between spinal surgeons.

Dr. Kern Singh has designed this unique reference which offers expert advice, preferences, and opinions on tough clinical questions commonly associated with the spine. The unique Q&A format provides quick access to current information related to the spine with the simplicity of a conversation between two colleagues. Numerous images, diagrams, and references allow readers to browse large amounts of information in an expedited fashion.

Curbside Consultation of the Spine: 49 Clinical Questions provides information basic enough for residents while also incorporating expert advice that even high-volume clinicians will appreciate. Practicing orthopedic spine surgeons, neurosurgeons, orthopedic and neurosurgical residents, and medical students will benefit from the user-friendly, casual format and the expert advice contained within.
Some of the questions that are answered:

How do I know intraoperatively that I have done a thorough lumbar decompression?
When I see my patients pre-operatively, what risk factors should I warn them about that may increase their chance for a post-operative infection?
I have a 65-year-old female who fell and suffered a central cord syndrome. What’s her prognosis and are there other types of incomplete spinal cord syndromes?
I have a 34-year-old patient with back pain and some buttock pain for two weeks. When should I get an MRI?
Do I need to perform neuromonitoring for every spine surgery? The cost appears to be relatively high and I want to be selective about its use.
I have a 64-year-old female who was fused posteriorly in the lumbar spine and I need to correct her lordosis. What’s the difference between a Smith-Peterson and a pedicle subtraction osteotomy?
