Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Samuel J. Chmell, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: While the principles of managing spinal afflictions have remained fairly constant, many of the methods have changed, and some continue to evolve. This is an update of a comprehensive book of spinal diseases that affect children and adults. The previous edition was published in 2000.
Purpose: The purpose, which is certainly worthwhile, is to provide an understanding of the basic science behind the clinical aspects of spinal disorders, a knowledge of the natural history and the clinical course of these disorders, and the treatment of them based on sound science and evidence-based literature.
Audience: The book is written for "students of spinal disease regardless of specialty and rank." There is valuable information for medical students, residents (or registrars), surgeons, and therapists. The authors are among the most credible spinal surgeons in the world.
Features: This book (2 volumes, more than 2,000 pages) covers the gamut of spinal afflictions. Chapters on primary and revision cervical and lumbar arthroplasty have been added and chapters on minimally invasive spinal surgery have been expanded. The references are outstanding. The photographs and diagrams are very apropos.
Assessment: There is no single book on the spine that can compare with this one. It belongs in every academic orthopedic and neurosurgical library. With the additions and expansions, this update is warranted.
From the Publisher
"It remains very readable, well referenced, and well illustrated, and it contains complete and current information for any physician or surgeon involved in the treatment of spinal disorders. This book is a must-read for all orthopaedic and neurological spinal surgeons as well as physiatrists and physical therapists who are involved in the treatment of the spine."- JBJS, review of the previous edition
