Extract

Once again, the five members of the editorial board of this renowned work have done a wonderful job of updating and improving an already excellent textbook. The editorial board has chosen authors who are nationally and internationally known and who are experts in their individual fields. The fifth edition continues the excellence of previous editions with important updates and chapter editions. The new chapters include topics such as biologic repair strategies in lumbar disc disease (Chapter 56) and disc and/or nucleus replacement (Chapter 58). Various new surgical procedures, such as transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (Chapter 24) and minimally invasive procedures (Chapter 21), are included in this new edition.
