Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Samuel J. Chmell, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: As part of the Secrets Series, this book uses a question-and-answer format to offer introductory, broad-based instruction in the evaluation and management of spinal disorders. The first edition was written in 2003, and this is a worthwhile update in a field that is rapidly changing.
Purpose: The purpose is to cover the common conditions encountered during evaluation and treatment of patients with spinal problems. Topics are arranged to provide readers with a sound knowledge base in the fundamentals of spinal anatomy, clinical assessment, spinal imaging, and nonoperative and operative treatment of spinal disorders.
Audience: The book is intended for a wide-ranging audience of physicians interested in furthering their knowledge and understanding of spinal disorders. It also would be of interest to medical students, nurses, physical therapists, chiropractors, attorneys, and medical device specialists.
Features: It covers the full spectrum of disorders affecting the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine in pediatric and adult patients. It is not intended to provide comprehensive coverage of specific topics, which is more appropriately the domain of major textbooks. Instead, it stimulates readers to further their knowledge of spinal disorders by using the listed references.
Assessment: The unique format, the wealth of information, and the excellent references make this an enjoyable book. It represents a worthwhile addition to a medical library that seeks to be complete in regard to teaching the management of spinal disorders.
