Introduction

This video atlas covers a broad range of spinal surgical procedures. The volume includes a collection of high quality 3-to-8 minute videos of some of the most critical spine operations performed by internationally renowned expert surgeons.

Key features of the book contents include:

  • - Downloadable high quality video content with subtitles suitable for viewing on any display (A brief preview of the book content can be viewed here).
  • - Detailed descriptions of surgical indications, preoperative planning, patient positioning, surgical technique, complications, postoperative care and outcomes for each procedure
  • - Full color images and illustrations highlighting different key stages of each surgical technique

The video format allows skill development of its intended audience by conveying temporal and spatial details which often go unnoticed in photograph format. This volume will be of immense interest to both the novice and the experienced spinal surgeon as they can benefit from the visual guides presented in the book. It also serves as an ideal teaching tool for spine surgery units in medical schools.
