Overview

Thieme congratulates Frank P. Cammisa on being chosen by New York magazine for its prestigious Best Doctors 2014 list.

Dynamic Reconstruction of the Spine, Second Edition , is the most up-to-date resource on the instrumentation, technologies, and fundamental science integral to achieving spine motion preservation and stabilization. It is a completely revised text that includes not only the latest technologies and surgical approaches, including MIS techniques, but also significantly more detail on the clinical biomechanics of the spine than the previous edition. Readers will appreciate the guidance this book provides on how to: successfully adopt new technology, find appropriate indications, address common safety and efficacy issues, and answer health economics questions for ethics committees and payers.

Key Features:

  • A substantial revision, with entirely new chapters in three quarters of the book, including a large section on basic as well as more advanced biomechanics topics
  • Highly visual - contains 20% more figures than the previous edition
  • Discusses and explains current advances in genetic and molecular technologies used to repair the spinal disc
  • Includes an unbiased critique of the pro cons, clinical outcomes, and comparative outcomes of different devices

This new edition is an indispensable reference for orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and radiologists, as well as residents and fellows seeking the latest information on the technologies used in spine motion preservation and stabilization.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The editors have succeeded in producing a text that provides a complete and up-to-date reference on the current state of dynamic stabilization, as well as on the technologies that are currently present only in the laboratory or are in the process of transitioning to the clinical realm. ...A very useful text for any clinician who actively treats degenerative disorders of the spine.--Journal of NeurosurgeryExcellent illustrations and well written and well referenced text accessible to those at all levels of expertise...worth its price...a must for any neurosurgeon, orthopaedic surgeon, radiologist, spine resident.--Doody's Book Reviews
From The Critics
Reviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MSc(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: New technologies for the dynamic instrumentation of the spine have been emerging over the past few years. In addition, newer surgical techniques, approaches, and devices have been developed for spinal surgery.
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to present new technologies and devices for anterior and posterior dynamic spinal instrumentation. These are worthy objectives in such a rapidly evolving field.
Audience: Neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, radiologists, fellows, and residents interested in the management of complex spinal conditions are the intended audience. The authors are very well known authorities in the field and leading physicians in the community.
Features: Authors from well known institutions around the world write the 48 chapters in this book. The book is divided into sections that overview the basic motion aspects of the spine and progressively concentrate on the different available spinal instrumentation devices, including pedicle-screw based systems, interspinous process spacers. The book then migrates into different technical nuances on anterior and posterior approaches for different spinal levels. In all chapters, one can find excellent illustrations and well written and well referenced text accessible to those at all levels of expertise, from apprentice to expert practitioners. It's well worth its price.
Assessment: This is a must for any neurosurgeon, orthopedic surgeon, radiologist, spine resident, or fellow, since it covers most of the recent updates in spinal instrumentation.
