From the reviews:

"Springer has released this book, MIS Techniques in Orthopedics, edited by three renowned surgeons in the field, in an attempt to introduce, summarize and evaluate the MIS technique. … MIS is a hot–and controversial–subject today, and books on this technique are … certainly welcome. … This book will be useful … to experienced surgeons who want to embark upon minimally invasive surgery." (Tord Röstlund, Acta Orthopaedica, Vol. 77 (4), 2006)
