Emerging Techniques in Spine Surgery with Interactive 1st Edition
Describes and illustrates the pathoanatomy of various spinal disorders and correlation with clinical symptoms and surgical treatment. Written by an International group of Experts of Spine Surgeons, this book thoroughly examines new technologies for treating spinal degenerative conditions while preserving motion. Offers a comprehensive text on standards of care with innovative and cutting edge technology from Percutaneous Endoscopic Thoracic Disectomy to Complex Internal Kyphectomy for deformity. It justifies the highly scientific and molecular basis of stem cell research and clinical applications. The contributors are International luminaries and pioneers of Spinal Surgery and Neurosurgery. The text is supported richly with concise and easy to comprehend figures and tables containing a highly impressive section on surgical techniques covering the most mundane to the basics of spine pathophysiology, biomechanics and molecular biology.
