Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery combines up-to-date research on surgical techniques with high-definition surgical video and concise algorithmic evidence. Each of its sixteen chapters begins with a brief summary followed by imaging indications, instrumentation, a step-by-step surgical technique (and video guide), as well as the potential complications and adverse outcomes that may develop.

Techniques discussed in the text include: Posterior Cervical Foraminotomy; Percutaneous Posterior Pedicle Screw Placement; Lumbar Discectomy; Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF); Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (LLIF). 

Also included is a discussion on the types of implants and instrumentation available today and the potential advantages they offer, making Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery an essential and relevant book for orthopaedic and neurosurgeons.
