About the Book

– Established, Current & Emerging Concepts of Spine book delves into the realm of spinal disorders, highlighting common non-traumatic conditions such as back pain that draw patients to General Orthopedic Services.

– It underscores the increasing demand for Orthopedic care, particularly among seniors grappling with back issues alongside multiple comorbidities.

– The spine is crucial within the musculoskeletal system, with its disorders and injuries requiring meticulous assessment and planning in orthopedic care services.

– The text explores a spectrum of spinal disorders, spanning metabolic, inflammatory, neuromuscular, infective, neoplastic, and degenerative conditions, emphasizing the necessity of deep-rooted patho-anatomical understanding despite advanced imaging capabilities.

Within these pages, emphasis is placed on non-operative approaches for most spinal disorder cases, advocating for physiotherapy, protective braces, and tailored medication strategies.

– The book outlines absolute indications for surgical interventions in spinal disorders, including scenarios of pathology uncertainty, neural deterioration, vertebral deformities, mechanical instability, infections, and neoplastic involvement.

– Operative strategies are detailed, focusing on tissue removal, debridement, and decompression with the least interference to preserve mobility, stability, and functionality.

– Readers will find insights into common orthopedic spinal procedures such as laminectomies, spinoplasties, laminoplasties, decompression techniques, partial corpectomies, and various spinal fusion methods.

– The narrative also explores the utilization of metal implants to reduce post-operative recumbency and the overarching goal of restoring mobility, stability, and functionality in spinal care, akin to the principles seen in arthroplasty for hip and knee conditions.

– This comprehensive spine book aims to illuminate the intricacies of orthopedic care in spinal disorders, advocating for the restoration and maintenance of vertebral column mobility, stability, and functionality.
