Divided into four sections, the authors begin with detailed discussion on the anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology of the intervertebral disc. The following sections examine the science of spinal instrumentation and spinal interventions. Clinical chapters are structured in a uniform format, beginning with the presentation of a clinical case, followed by detailed discussion and supporting evidence.
