Handbook of Minimally Invasive and Percutaneous Spine Surgery, edited by Drs. Wang, Anderson, Ludwig, and Mummaneni, is destined to become a favorite with all students of spine surgery, whether residents in training or experienced practitioners. Small enough to fit in a lab coat pocket, this exceptional manual is just the resource you need. It will prove invaluable as a quick reference in daily practice or simply as a refresher when confronting a difficult clinical problem. This fully illustrated fundamental guide focuses on procedures and techniques that require minimal exposure. Presented in a concise and readable format, this text delivers the basics for those new to minimally invasive surgery as well as pointers and tips for more advanced surgeons. It is destined to become a favorite with all students of spine surgery. Composed of 11 chapters, this practical manual begins with the true foundation of minimally invasive surgery--imaging. Safe and effective surgery performed through minimal exposures demands a thorough mind's-eye understanding of anatomy without visualization. Moreover, it requires a keen ability to mentally translate two-dimensional imaging into three-dimensional anatomy. Next, the most common techniques of cannulation are covered in a logical step-by-step fashion, just as it is taught in the operating room. Minimally invasive options for pedicle screw placement are completed with a chapter describing the mini-open technique. The second half of this book focuses on fusion and pedicle screw insertion. Finally, this handbook does not ignore the endpoint of all these techniques--achieving successful fusion. Techniques to enhance the success of this outcome are discussed in Chapter 9, whereas potential complications and methods to avoid them are outlined in Chapter 8. Each chapter concludes with "Surgical Pearls and Pitfalls," which provide summaries of the salient points discussed in the chapter. Unique to this text are highlighted boxes outlining "Bailouts/Alternative Strategies" for completing the task when classic techniques fail. Furthermore, each chapter is well illustrated, with step-by-step images that clearly demonstrate the points being made. Written by world-recognized minimally invasive spine surgeons, this handbook provides essential coverage of key topics.

Learn state-of-the-art MIS techniques from master spine surgeons! Significant advances have been made in minimally invasive spine (MIS) surgery approaches, techniques, and innovative technologies. By preserving normal anatomic integrity during spine surgery, MIS approaches enable spine surgeons to achieve improved patient outcomes, including faster return to normal active lifestyles and reduced revision rates. Exposing only the small portion of the spine responsible for symptoms via small ports or channels, requires a deep understanding of spinal anatomy and spinal pathophysiology. Building on the widely acclaimed first edition, An Anatomic Approach to Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, Second Edition, provides an expanded foundation of knowledge to master minimally invasive spine surgery. World-renowned spine neurosurgeons Mick Perez-Cruet, Richard Fessler, Michael Wang, and a cadre of highly regarded spine surgery experts provide masterful tutorials on an impressive array of cutting-edge technologies. Organized by seven sections and 51 chapters, the book presents a diverse spectrum of current safe and efficacious MIS procedures and future innovations.

Contemporary spinal surgeons, whether orthopedic or neurosurgeons, are increasingly recognizing minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) as a desirable option to manage advanced degenerative diseases. MISS techniques minimize blood loss, surgical site pain, and speed recovery. Thus, the marriage of MISS with adult spinal deformity was a natural one. Currently, the techniques, technologies, and education of surgeons have finally reached a point where MISS deformity surgeries are becoming commonplace. Nevertheless, the field is young enough that no comprehensive texts have addressed the unique challenges faced by surgeons exploring this evolving field. This book will fill the gap.
