The first comprehensive book dedicated solely to the evaluation and treatment of cervical spine deformity!

The number of cervical fusion procedures has increased in the U.S. and globally during the last decade, in part due to an aging population and higher incidence of complex cervical problems. Despite advances in the surgical treatment of cervical deformities, few resources detail modern clinical assessment, radiographic evaluation, and surgical approaches. Cervical Spine Deformity Surgery by world-renowned spine surgeons Christopher Ames, K. Daniel Riew, Justin Smith, and Kuniyoshi Abumi fills a void in the literature. It provides a concise, state-of-the-art resource on current cervical deformity knowledge compiled from the literature and recognized masters in the field.

The generously illustrated text begins with a background on the marked health impact of cervical deformity. Opening chapters provide primers on the clinical and radiographic assessment of patients, malalignment and disability scores, and the physical exam. Subsequent chapters detail surgical planning and approaches for a full spectrum of cervical spine conditions, such as semi-rigid and rigid deformities, sagittal deformities, distal junctional kyphosis, congenital cervical deformity, and hemivertebra.

Key Features

In this course they will present our philosophy on the treatment of spinal trauma in an multidisciplinary and interactive way. Classifications, treatment options and tips and tricks in open and percutaneous surgery from C- spine down to the pelvis are presented by a experienced faculty.

Next to regular lectures concerning classification and treatment options in spinal trauma, the teamwork in multidisciplinary group which is needed to treat a polytrauma patient with a spinal fracture will be discussed by experts in the field of neurosurgery, trauma surgery and rehabilitation medicine.  In the programme there is ample time for discussion, case presentations and interaction with the faculty.
