An Updated Edition of a Comprehensive Text on Spinal Deformities

New York, NY, August 17, 2014 --( Thieme is excited to announce the publication of the second edition of "Spinal Deformities," a concise overview of current key principles and practices used in the diagnosis and treatment of spinal deformities. Each chapter of this introductory text begins with The Essentials, a bulleted list that summarizes the most important concepts presented, providing busy surgeons, residents, and fellows with a quick refresher before surgery. This book is designed to bring spine surgeons up to speed on the basics of treating patients with spinal deformities and help them to confidently diagnose and treat their patients.

“Every once in a while a book comes along that you absolutely must have on your shelf. More rarely, one is written that you really want to read cover to cover. This is one of those books!” – From the Foreword by Bradford L. Currier, MD

Written by leading experts in spine surgery, this text will be an invaluable reference for all orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, residents, and fellows involved in the care of patients with spinal deformities.
