World renowned contributors offer a critical evaluation of the latest approaches and techniques, including an overview of treatments available for patients trying to avoid surgery, preparing for surgery, or following surgery.

All new content is organized into 8 sections, providing an accessible reference for both ongoing review, but also for practical application with patients. The book integrates both interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches to spine care to help ensure the highest level of patient care.

  • Diagnostics in Spine Care
  • Medical Management of Spine Disorders
  • Surgical Management of Degenerative Spinal Disorders
  • Spinal Deformity
  • Trauma
  • Neoplastic and Inflammatory Conditions

An extensive annotated reference section allows easy exploration of topics of special interest.
