As an orthopaedic-educated, spine-fellowship-trained surgeon whose practice is totally spine-based and strongly integrated with the resident teaching program, I am constantly looking for good teaching texts. This text covers the breadth of spine surgery, from patient evaluation, pathology, and treatment decisions to surgical techniques, associated complications, and long-term care. Nonoperative care, biomechanics, and medical economics also are given thorough consideration. The authors are primarily neurosurgically oriented, but the text and bibliographies have large contributions from both the orthopaedic and neurosurgical disciplines.
