Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery: Advanced Surgical Techniques

by Alexander R Vaccaro, Kern Singh

Drs Singh and Vaccaro have compiled an outstanding text, guiding the reader and viewer through surgical indications, pertinent anatomy, set-up and techniques in an easy to follow sequence. Although brief, each chapter does an outstanding job of succinctly capturing the essence of the procedure and associated pitfalls. The consistency between chapters makes the book easy to follow. This text should serve as a useful resource for both trainees and the experienced spine surgeon. In addition, its value as an overview and reference before performing a procedure cannot be underestimated. Minimally invasive spine surgery has gained significant interest due to the reported expedited postoperative recovery, decreased blood loss, shorter length of hospital stay, and lower postoperative pain as compared to the traditional open techniques. Through carefully curated figures, radiographs, and commentary, this book describes the innovative techniques, evidence, and controversies surrounding minimally invasive spine surgery. We believe that orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and surgical trainees, such as students, residents, and fellows, will benefit from the step-by-step descriptions of the techniques in the text.
