About this book

Introduction

"... This unique textbook offers a broad yet concentrated look at the single topic of lumbar disc herniation ... Franco Postacchini and his colleagues have provided us with 24 unique chapters ranging from a wonderful historical perspective through anatomy, pathophysiology, biochemistry and biomechanics, and ending with diagnostic imaging treatment algorithms and complications ... The wonderful figures, short tables, and easily read text make this an exceptionally useful book for those practicing and treating patients with lumbar disc herniations ... I have enjoyed reading Franco Postacchini's textbook and applaud him and his small number of colleagues on providing us with over 500 illustrations, 2800 references and significant perspective on a common clinical problem for which there remains much uncertainty and much variation in practice ...” From the Foreword of James N. Weinstein
