Reviews

"After reviewing the anatomy and approaches to the spine, Kim (spinal neurosurgery, Stanford University Medical Center), two other neurosurgeons, and an orthopedic surgeon lead readers through the latest techniques in spine surgery, detailing procedures commonly performed for degenerative disease, trauma, scoliosis, tumor, and infection. Techniques are illustrated with color drawings, computer-generated images, and cadaver dissection photos. A companion CD-ROM contains all of the images from the book in a searchable format for use in electronic presentations." -- SciTech Book News, March 2006
