Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Lumbar Spine

Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Lumbar Spine

Minimally or noninvasive surgical techniques have profoundly changed the way surgeons operate today. The possibility of offering the patient a selection of spinal surgical procedures, based on mediating the consequences of surgery while maximizing the results of the procedure has resulted in a growing interest in minimally invasive spinal surgery (MISS). MISS is a multidisciplinary subject involving the orthopedic surgeon, neurosurgeon, radiologists, anesthesiologists and pain management specialists, each of which needs to act in unison to maximize the benefit to the patient.


Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Lumbar Spine represents the first multidisciplinary review of the topic in which the focus is on the management of the patient throughout the perioperative period. The Editor and his carefully selected group of Contributors focus on correct diagnoses using the most appropriate imaging. The book reviews anesthesiology techniques, the optimal minimally invasive approach, treatment of lumbar disc herniation and degenerative disc disease, and the most advanced applications of robotic surgery. It will therefore be vital reading for all spinal orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, pain management specialists, anesthesiologists, and interventional radiologists involved in the management of patients who would benefit from MISS procedures.
