This book accentuates the anatomies involved in spine surgery techniques, from the base of the skull down to the sacrum and the sacroiliac joint. It includes extensive illustrations that cover all major spine surgeries. It also discusses the instrumentations used with different operative approaches. The book features high-resolution pictures of operative dissection, cadaveric specimens, and intraoperative imaging that clearly illustrate the relevant anatomy of various spine surgery procedures, allowing surgeons to “reconstruct” a three-dimensional anatomical view when performing the surgery. As such, it is a valuable reference resource for spine surgeons.
