Overview

This masterwork has been considered the defining source on the basic science and clinical practice of spine surgery in adults and children for 30 years. The new 5th Edition represents the most sweeping overhaul of this landmark reference yet - with many new contributors, a wealth of new content, a totally new organization, and many enhanced illustrations. You'll find the latest techniques for bone grafting and bone growth augmentation · artificial disc replacement · minimally invasive spine surgery · and much more ... all in the two-volume set that practitioners have been turning to for the best operative and nonoperative approaches in spinal treatment since 1975.

• Includes state-of-the-art discussions of bone grafting and bone growth augmentation · artificial disc replacement · minimally invasive surgical procedures · genetic applications · bone morphogenetic protein as an alternative to traditional spine fusion · and other timely topics.
• Provides a completely new section on diagnosis that delivers multi-disciplinary perspectives on this primary clinical concern.
• Presents a new section on The Failed Back that systematically covers even the most complex problems.

• Covers both surgical and non-surgical treatment approaches.
• Features a total reorganization into shorter, more focused chapters.
• Offers contributions from mostly new contributors, to ensure fresh, contemporary insights on every topic.
• Incorporates a significant amount of new and redrawn art work.

With more than 125 additional contributing experts.
