It is well known that the socioeconomic consequences due to disorders of the spine are a major problem in our country and in other parts of the industrialized world. This is particularly true in the adult spine. With aging and the increase in life expectancy, physicians will have to face an ever-increasing number of patients with complaints related to the spine.
Frymoyer and his associates have assembled an impressive list of international scientists and clinicians to put together this comprehensive two-volume publication on the adult spine. The 109 authors submitted contributions on topics ranging from epidemiology and sciences basic to the understanding of the spine to the most current methods of diagnosis and to nonoperative and operative management of disorders of the spine.
The book is well laid out, with volume 1 addressing epidemiology, disability and societal impact, general issues of spinal disorders, and generalized disorders of the spine. In
