Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is a comprehensive yet concise overview of spine trauma. . aimed at surgeons in training, beginning spine attendings, or surgeons who do not deal with trauma on a daily basis. . What's unique about this book is that it manages to be concise but does not leave out pertinent details. The case examples are very useful, and the book takes a unique approach to delivering the information. . This is a good reference and technique guide for those dealing with spine trauma."
