"Larson and Maiman have pioneered both the study of the lumbar spine, as well as the surgical and non-surgical management of lumbar spine pathology. A comprehensive treatise... clearly enhances the surgeon's ability to care for patients with lumbar spine pathology; most importantly; it significantly advances the field." -- Edward C. Benzel, MD (from the foreword)


Written by two of the most distinguished leaders in modern spine surgery, this book provides "everything you need to know" regarding surgery of the lumbar spine.
