Introduction

Now is its revised and expanded third edition, including nine new chapters, this step-by-step, state-of-the-art procedural manual covers over 50 unique surgical approaches for injuries and conditions of the spine. Generously illustrated, various surgical approaches to the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine are clearly enumerated and described, including anterior, lateral, and posterior approaches and the worldwide movement toward the use of tubular retractors for a multitude of approaches. Written and edited by leaders in the field of spine surgery, this updated edition will be an invaluable resource for orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons and sports medicine practitioners alike.
