  • Editorial Reviews

    "In the editor's own words, "This book is but an extension of the previous editions." Each edition brings new information, technology, and advances in clinical decision making. An update is mandatory, every few years, in such a rapidly evolving field. Nevertheless, the use of electronic media technologies and the incorporation of material from the Cervical Spine Society instructional courses make this edition a unique departure from previous ones."
