Dynamic Reconstruction of the Spine is an essential reference on the current techniques and equipment for dynamic stabilization of the spine.

Covering both anterior and posterior approaches to dynamic stabilization, the book presents a complete overview of the state-of-the-art technologies in spinal arthroplasty and instrumentation for dynamic stabilization. Each chapter of this authoritative text focuses on a different technology. The authors illuminate the key concepts of each implant device and provide concise discussion of the rationale, indications, contraindications, surgical techniques, and postoperative results.


  • Synthesizes the vast amount of literature on the newest implantable artificial disks for restoring and preserving motion of the spine
  • Features contributions from the inventors of or experts on these systems
  • Demonstrates key concepts of instrumentation and techniques with more than 400 instructional illustrations

Dynamic Reconstruction of the Spine is an indispensable reference for all spine specialists, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, radiologists, fellows, and residents seeking the latest information on this emerging technology.

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
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
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.
