Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery – Techniques, Evidence, and Controversies 1st Edition


minimally-invasive-spine-surgery[dropcap]M[/dropcap]inimally invasive spine surgery, in some form or
other, has historical roots dating back more than 100 years, and recent
advances in technology now make it increasingly effective in treating
suitable spine patients. While minimally invasive approaches have shown to
reduce muscle damage, blood loss, and post-operative pain, to perform this t
ype of surgery correctly, even highly skilled modern-day surgeons must
prepare themselves for a demanding learning curve.

For this reason,
AOSpine proudly presents Minimally Invasive Spine
Surgery: Techniques,Evidence, and Controversies
, the most comprehensive book
of its kind, which includes more than 500 pages of surgical techniques,
illustrations, case images, tips and tricks, and research, providing an
invaluable tool for spine surgeons around the world.

Each technique is fully

  • The pros and cons of each is objectively reviewed
  • Its
    spectrum of indications and contraindications is summarized
  • Historical and
    modern day controversies relating to each technique are discussed
  • Uniquely,
    chapters in the text are further supported by an evidence-based
    section summarizing research studies, analysis, and conclusions into each
    technique, from peer-reviewed journals

The text covers more than just a
range of interesting medical techniques. By including brief historical
introductions on each technique and the surgeons that explored and founded
its methods, their early (sometimes self-made) instrumentation, right through
to today‘s current best-practice, this book provides an interesting,
informative, and topical instruction on minimally
invasive surgery and its increasingly encouraging results for spine-patient
