Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This pocket-sized book is a valuable resource for anyone taking care of spine patients, and it is especially valuable to residents and fellows training in spine surgery. The organization and small size of this reference allows the reader quick access to the pertinent information. The book's greatest strength is its inclusion of many scales, measurements, and scores, often complete with diagrams illustrating each—an invaluable resource."

—David Westra, MD, Loma Linda University Medical Center, California, USA, in Journal of Neurosurgery
