Decision Making in Spinal Care presents all the current information on management strategies for the most common spine problems, including trauma injuries, metabolic and degenerative diseases, and spinal deformities. Each chapter opens with a concise introduction to the topic and discussion of the classification of the injury, condition, or management approach. The authors then describe the diagnostic workup of the patient, the treatment options available, the likely outcome, and possible complications.

Highlights:

  • Treatment algorithms at the start of each chapter enable clinicians to rapidly determine the pathology of a spine condition, formulate a diagnostic plan, and choose which surgical or nonsurgical treatment is best
  • Discussion of contemporary spinal issues, including spinal tumors, osteoporosis, minimally invasive surgery, and nonfusion techniques, keeps the clinician abreast of the latest advances
  • Annotated lists of key references, complete with synopses of the articles and chapters referenced, enable readers to pursue topics at greater length
  • More than 200 figures demonstrate important concepts

This must-have reference is ideal for orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, physiatrists, and primary care physicians seeking to sharpen their clinical decision-making skills in managing spine conditions. The book will also benefit spine fellows, medical students, and residents needing a comprehensive board review.
