Editorial Reviews

Reviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MSc(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: Extensive development in the understanding of neuroanesthesiological, neurosurgical, and mechanical aspects of pediatric spinal disorders has triggered progress in surgical techniques. This comprehensive book is a much-needed resource for anyone performing complex pediatric spine surgery.
Purpose: This book aims to provide a comprehensive view of the current standards of clinical and radiological diagnoses, biomechanical principles, and surgical management of pediatric spinal diseases.
Audience: Neurosurgeons, pediatric neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, and rehabilitation practitioners are the main audience. The authors are leading experts in the management of complex pediatric spinal conditions.
Features: With over 1,000 high quality pictures, superbly written text, and updated references, this book describes in detail the principles of pediatric spine biomechanics, anesthesia, instrumentation, and non-fusion techniques of the pediatric spine. The last chapter interestingly describes principles of rehabilitation of the pediatric spine, an important aspect since ability to function as a normal adult is a crucial point to consider in the performance of surgery in this population. Overall, this is an authoritative compendium on common and complex spinal disorders, written by over 120 leading experts in the field.
Assessment: This is an excellent reference for neurosurgeons, pediatric neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, and rehabilitation practitioners. It should be an integral part of any of thesedepartmental libraries.
