The first comprehensive review of minimallyinvasive spine surgery... as performed by theleading surgeons throughout the country! Percutaneous Procedures
Minimally invasive spinal surgery has made tremendous strides in the pastdecade, with advances in instrumentation and techniques rapidly changing thescope of these procedures. Highlighted by nearly 650 high-quality images, thisis the first text to comprehensively review the critical aspects and developmentsin the field. It features in-depth guidelines and approaches for performingcervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine surgery; percutaneous procedures;and image-guided and robotic surgery.Key features:
-Technique-oriented text that also provides the fundamentals for a completeunderstanding of the minimally invasive approach
-Organized into seven well-defined sections for quick reference
-Nearly 650 images demonstrate all surgical steps
-Key discussions of minimally invasive interbody fusion, thoracic diskectomy,trauma stabilization, lumbar decompression, tumor resection, and more
With contributions from leading surgeons throughout the country, this textprovides a solid foundation in minimally invasive spinal techniques. For allneurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, and spinal surgeons, this is both a usefultool and an educational resource for integrating these operative methods intopractice.
