Written by highly renowned spine surgeons, the new edition is presented in full color with the addition of several hundred exquisitely crafted illustrations.

Chapters are categorically arranged, encompassing cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine pathologies. Within the framework of trauma, degenerative changes, congenital conditions, tumors, and infections ??" topics include spinal cord injury, thoracolumbar spine fractures; lumbar disk disease, stenosis, and spondylolisthesis; and spinal deformities in children and adults. Rounding out the volume are chapters on tumors, infections, and immune disorders that impact the spine such as rheumatoid arthritis and seronegative spondyloarthropathies.
