About this book

Introduction

Minimally invasive spinal surgery has progressed significantly from the first blind nucleotomy in the 1970s to such advanced techniques as endoscopic fragmenectomy, decompression of lateral recess stenosis, foraminoplasty, and spinal stabilization. In Arthroscopic and Endoscopic Spinal Surgery: Text and Atlas, an authoritative panel of surgeons, researchers, inventors, experts, and the creator of the field describe and illustrate various techniques and approaches that are currently used for the treatment of painful spine pathologies. The authors guide the surgeon and demonstrate step-by-step how minimally invasive techniques can be used for the treatment of spinal disorders without violating the content of the spinal canal and how anatomical structures appear through an endoscope. They also provide visual aid for the diagnosis and recognition of various anatomical structures of the spine and cutting-edge methods that prevent the development of postsurgical failed-back syndrome.
Up-to-date and instructive, Arthroscopic and Endoscopic Spinal Surgery: Text and Atlas will teach surgeons how minimally invasive techniques can be used for the treatment of spinal disorders without violating the content of the spinal canal and normal anatomy.
