Description

The term "minimally invasive spinal surgery" was coined in early 1990 following pub- cation of the first edition of this text entitled Arthroscopic Microdiscectomy: Minimal Intervention in Spinal Surgery, and subsequent establishment of the International Society for Minimal Intervention in Spinal Surgery (ISMISS) under the auspices of the International Society of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology (SICOT) in April l990. The orthopedic and neurological surgeons who participated in lectures and hands-on wo- shops both in Philadelphia and abroad have witnessed the evolution of minimally invasive spinal surgery from blind nucleotomy to endoscopic fragmentectomy, decompression of l- eral recess stenosis, foraminoplasty, and spinal stabilization. In Arthroscopic and Endoscopic Spinal Surgery: Text and Atlas, Second Edition, experts describe and illustrate various techniques and approaches that are currently used in this field. In addition, the ongoing research for the betterment of spine care via minimally invasive approaches is briefly reviewed. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to so many of my colleagues who s- ported my efforts in the field of minimally invasive spinal surgery throughout the years. Many of them participated in our teaching symposiums and have provided valuable cont- butions to this text.show more

Review quote

"...should be in the medical libraries that serve students in chiropractic, medicine, nursing, and physical therapy. Furthermore, this text would augment the reference shelves of practitioners with patients who have spinal pathology." -Physical Therapyshow more

Back cover copy

Minimally invasive spinal surgery has progressed significantly from the first blind nucleotomy in the 1970s to such advanced techniques as endoscopic fragmenectomy, decompression of lateral recess stenosis, foraminoplasty, and spinal stabilization. In Arthroscopic and Endoscopic Spinal Surgery: Text and Atlas, an authoritative panel of surgeons, researchers, inventors, experts, and the creator of the field describe and illustrate various techniques and approaches that are currently used for the treatment of painful spine pathologies. The authors guide the surgeon and demonstrate step-by-step how minimally invasive techniques can be used for the treatment of spinal disorders without violating the content of the spinal canal and how anatomical structures appear through an endoscope. They also provide visual aid for the diagnosis and recognition of various anatomical structures of the spine and cutting-edge methods that prevent the development of postsurgical failed-back syndrome. Up-to-date and instructive, Arthroscopic and Endoscopic Spinal Surgery: Text and Atlas will teach surgeons how minimally invasive techniques can be used for the treatment of spinal disorders without violating the content of the spinal canal and normal anatomy.show more
