About this book
In the past few years spine surgery has undergone revolutionary changes leading towards minimally invasive techniques. This book is a survey of microsurgical as well as endoscopic surgical techniques for the treatment of a variety of spinal disorders. The structure of the individual chapters includes terminology, history, surgical principles, advantages/disadvantages, indications, surgical technique, complications and hazards as well as results. However all chapters are focused on a very didactic presentation of surgical steps. Thus, the reader will get familiar with a variety of new techniques some of which are already integrated into clinical routine others still being part of ongoing clinical trials and development.
