Extract

This well written, broadly based text covers most of the issues that are pertinent to those who perform operations on the cervical spine. The text proceeds in an orderly fashion, starting with a detailed review of anatomy, operative approaches, biomechanics, and radiographic findings. There is an appropriate increase in the complexity of the issues related to care; for example, the non-operative treatment of herniated cervical discs and degenerative disc disease is discussed before the options for operative treatment are presented. Traumatic injuries of the spine are clearly described by authors who are well versed in their respective topics. More esoteric topics, such as tumors, intradural lesions, and complications of operative treatment, are discussed in later portions of the book.
