Minimally invasive spinal surgery has made tremendous strides in the past decade, with advances in instrumentation and techniques rapidly changing the scope of these procedures. Highlighted by nearly 650 high-quality images, this is the first text to comprehensively review the critical aspects and developments in the field. It features in-depth guidelines and approaches for performing cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine surgery; percutaneous procedures; and image-guided and robotic surgery. You will also find key discussions of minimally invasive interbody fusion, thoracic discectomy, trauma stabilization, lumbar decompression, tumor resection, and more. With contributions from leading surgeons throughout the country, this text provides a solid foundation in minimally invasive spinal techniques. For all neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, and spinal surgeons, it is both a useful tool and an educational resource for integrating these operative methods into practice.
