This book on spinal restabilization techniques is an anatomical, biomechanical, clinical, radiological, and surgical overview of the diagnostic methods and newest treatment options for use in patients presenting with degenerative disc disease associated with spinal instability. Edited by a Neurosurgeon and a Neuroradiologist with extensive experience in these areas, it covers the most current information in the field of modern spinal corrective surgery. The varied therapeutic options are presented by many of the primary inventors and first users of the wide array of newly developed and individually unique intersegmental stabilization devices, interbody disc fusion appliances and intervertebral disc replacement implants. This international collection of chapters is intended to be of interest not only to spine surgeons, but also to any physician involved in the diagnosis and treatment of degenerative disc disease and spinal instability that is resistant to conservative management.
