"A tour de force of spine care from a master spine surgeon who has literally seen it all over the course of a four-decade career! This book is a must-read that is accessible to both the layperson and healthcare professionals. I found it both enjoyable and informative." -- Dr. Andrew J. Schoenfeld, Harvard Medical School professor and Spine editor in chief

A practical and occasionally provocative look at the state of spinal surgical care

Just a few decades ago most spine surgery was literally a gamble: maybe you'd get better and maybe you wouldn't. Today we have the knowledge, understanding, and technology to predictably relieve pain and neurological deficits like never before -- yet many patients are still getting subpar care.

Foundational knowledge of surgical spine care isn't spreading to the medical community, let alone to patients, whose quality of life hangs in the balance. With The Back Story on Spine Care, orthopedic specialist Dr. Drew Bednar presents case studies that illuminate the common issues plaguing patients -- and their treatment -- today.

Back problems are among the most common health issues, and with Dr. Bednar's insights, knowledge, and practical tips, medical professionals can provide care that leads to healthier backs and happier lives.
