Spinal Arthroplasty: A New Era in Spine Care.
Spinal arthroplasty; a new era in spine care.
Ed. by Richard D. Guyer and Jack E. Zigler.
Quality Medical Publishing
Surgeons and other back specialists survey new techniques and approaches to treating discogenic pain that retain motion, as alternatives to the spinal fusion that has been the standard treatment for years but restricts motion. After sections on fundamentals and biomechanics and development, they describe such techniques and technologies as dynamic-stabilization devices, microsurgical anular reconstruction, total disc replacement, and cervical arthroplasty with a multifunctional prosthesis. The also look at future possibilities.
