Extract

The aim of this comprehensive text on the spine was to provide a single-source reference for residents who are rotating through the subspecialty of spinal surgery. Multiple authors (fifty-six) collaborated and contributed to this work. The text is organized with a focus on diagnostic categories but also includes sections on assessment, surgery, and general knowledge.The authors have achieved their goal to provide an easily accessible and user-friendly source for the purpose of educating the orthopaedic resident. The book serves as a platform for general information on a variety of spinal disorders, and it also provides references for further information and study. My favorite chapters include those on imaging, tumors, the biology of spinal fusion, and outcomes assessment.
