Surgery of the Spine: a combined orthopaedic and neurosurgical approach (a complete set of 2 volumes)

£85.00

Product description

First edition, published 1992, by Blackwell Scientific Publication in a set of two volumes. Hardback. Green cloth board covers with gold lettering on front cover and spine. No dust jackets. Green end papers. Binding secure. Inside pages are clean. Overall in very good condition. 1143 pages plus index.

Introduction by Henk Verbiest. Edited by Gordon Findlay and Robert Owen.

The practice of spinal surgery has traditionally been split between orthopaedic surgeons with a special interest in the spine and neurosurgeons. This division is reflected in the existing literature, where the emphasis in the major textbooks is generally on orthopaedic procedures. In recent years, most notably in the US, spinal surgery has emerged as a separate speciality.

The editors of "Surgery of the Spine - a Combined Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Approach" have assembled an international team of contributors, with the primary aim of bringing together the expertise and experience of two distinct surgical specialities and providing an integrated approach to the management of spinal disorders in a major reference work.

The introductory chapter gives an account of the historical development of spinal surgery and sets out the philosophical and practical reasons for a combined orthopaedic and neurosurgical approach to the management of spinal disorders. The following eleven chapters cover the basic sciences, clinical assessment and the latest investigative techniques. The remainder of the text is devoted to an account of all conditions which affect the spine ranging from congenital deformity to degenerative disease, trauma, infections, metabolic diseases, the management of spinal pain and spasticity and the management of all spinal lesions. The clinical aspects of each condition are dealt with and the various options for diagnosis and treatment are presented.

This complete set will be of use to medical students and practitioners alike. Offered at a very competitive price.

NB These two volumes are quite heavy (4.5 kg approx) and, therefore, incur a small additional charge for postage.
