Here is complete coverage of state-of-the-art surgical techniques for the spine and peripheral nerves. This atlas engages the full range of approaches — anterior, antero-lateral, posterior, and postero-lateral — for operations on peripheral nerves and in every area of the spine.

Each of the seven sections of the atlas opens with in-depth discussion of pathology, etiology and differential diagnosis conveying the underlying scientific principles of diseases and conditions of the spine and peripheral nerves. The authors then present technique-oriented chapters containing step-by-step descriptions of surgical procedures. These chapters delineate the goals, indications, contraindications, anesthesia considerations, positions, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each technique in a concise manner, ideal for the busy practitioner seeking review.

Beautifully illustrated with more than 1,200 images, including 811 full-color drawings, this authoritative text covers all of the critical issues involved in surgeries for the spine and peripheral nerves. It will be an invaluable asset to neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons and residents seeking a carefully edited, didactic atlas.
