The field of spine surgery is in a state of flux, with minimally invasive and open surgical procedures vying for dominance.
A new volume in the Minimally Invasive Orthopaedic Surgery series, Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery weighs the pros and cons of today’s open versus minimally invasive techniques, allowing you to choose the approaches that will best meet your patients’ needs. In each chapter, accomplished experts describe the advantages, indications, setup, technical aspects, and problem areas associated with a given minimally invasive procedure, including critiques from surgeons who favor a standard open approach – to give you a balanced, objective foundation for surgical decision making.
