Dr. Frymoyer’s definitive two-volume reference, The Adult Spine: Principles and Practice, has been thoroughly revised and refocused for its Third Edition. This edition covers both the adult and the pediatric spine, provides more complete and detailed information on surgical techniques, and includes eminent neurosurgeons as section editors and contributors.
Chapters thoroughly describe the clinical presentation, diagnosis, prognosis, nonoperative management, and surgical treatment of all diseases and traumatic injuries. Each chapter includes algorithms and bulleted lists of key points. This edition’s coverage of each region of the spine features a separate comprehensive section on operative techniques, with original drawings that demonstrate the techniques.
