"This book is a description of state-of-the-art solutions to common controversies in contemporary spine surgery. The best feature is the arrangement of the sections within each chapter such that comparison can be made between the opinions presented on the various clinical problems. The chapters are well written, scientifically rigorous, and appropriately concise. There are contributions by a great number of experts in the field of spinal surgery. I highly recommend this book as a reference source for controversies in contemporary spine surgery."
British Journal of Neurosurgery
"This is the first book that I have reviewed and read from cover to cover. I think that all surgeons with a major interest in the treatment of spinal disorders will enjoy reading the text and find many of the controversies which concern their day to day practice discussed ... In summary this is an extremely useful book that most spinal surgeons will wish to consult and many will buy their own copy. It has been a pleasure to review a spinal textbook in which there is no mention of degenerative spinal disease and in which all mention of instability is real and not imagined."
World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies
"In summary this is an excellent book that I recommend for neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons trating spinal disorders. I believe that it is a must have for any hospital library, and represents a nice addition to any personal library."
