Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kris Siemionow, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive yet concise overview of spine trauma.
Purpose: It is intended to be a useful guide, and in some chapters, it does achieve its goal. Some chapters are a bit basic, but useful nevertheless.
Audience: The book is aimed at surgeons in training, beginning spine attendings, or surgeons who do not deal with trauma on a daily basis.
Features: This is a good overview of a difficult topic. What's unique about this book is that it manages to be concise but does not leave out pertinent details. The case examples are very useful, and the book takes a unique approach to delivering the information.
Assessment: This is a good reference and technique guide for those dealing with spine trauma.
