An essential, one-stop reference guide to the evaluation and treatment of patients with cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine disease. Based on a course taught by these highly respected authors at the American Academy of Neurology's Annual Meeting, this volume gives concise descriptions of the anatomy of spine conditions; neurologic and physical findings; advice on diagnostic tests and when to order them; and medical and surgical treatment options. Commonly performed spinal procedures are also described, including the rapidly changing field of minimally invasive surgery. Pitfalls of evaluating and treating spine patients are highlighted, along with advice on how to approach the patient who does not improve or worsens after spine surgery. Spine Disorders: Medical and Surgical Management is an essential purchase for all practitioners in this field.

'Co-written by a neurologist and a surgeon, this book was conceived from an annual course given at the American Academy of Neurology. It is an interesting guide on the evaluation and treatment provided to patients with disorders of the cervical, dorsal, and lumbar spine. It offers on one hand a concise description of the anatomy of the spine, neurological and physical signs and secondly, follows with advice on imaging, diagnostic testing ... various medical and surgical treatments, new technologies, and the increasing evolution of ... mini-invasive surgery. ... [It] is embellished with beautiful illustrations and summary tables that help readers better understand the topic, choose the best treatments, and detect when the surgery will be necessary ...' Bulletin Signaletique Reedoc
'... current, well presented and provides for all members of extended para-medical, medical and surgical teams, a resource which will aid their knowledge extension, as they support a demanding group of patients. The text is easily accessible, logical and portable!' Journal of Perioperative Practice
'... clearly written and easy to read ... gives a balanced view about all topics ... well-supported by additional information in tabular form and good graphics including illustrations and photographs. ... The authors believe that the book will benefit all healthcare providers who see patients with spine disorders. I would certainly agree that it provides a very good insight into all aspects of spinal disease and the surgical treatment of such conditions for all non-medical practitioners. It would also provide a very good grounding for all surgical trainees considering embarking upon a career in spinal surgery.' Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England
