This concise and lucid monograph represents the conclusions of a noted senior neurosurgeon after a lifetime exposure to the problems of intervertebral disc disease of the lumbar spine. Dr. Semmes adopts a highly personal and firm attitude to various procedures, including myelography and spinal fusion, to which his experiences entitle him. As a course of information about the management of low back problems from a single able neurosurgeon, whose statistics are unblurred by multiple participants in treatment, this little volume should have great value.
