The definitive practical reference on managing idiopathic scoliosis from world-renowned experts
Idiopathic Scoliosis: The Harms Study Group Treatment Guide, Second Edition, edited by Peter O. Newton, Amer F. Samdani, Harry L. Shufflebarger, Randal R. Betz, and Jürgen Harms and written by an impressive group of experts reflects treatment advances made in the last decade. Greater understanding of the etiology and improved 3D anatomy has resulted in significant strides in clinical management of scoliosis. This richly illustrated book presents all facets of evaluation and treatment of abnormal curvature of the spine, supported by a solid foundation of evidence-based data culled from the prestigious Harms Study Group.
Divided into four sections and 31 chapters, this one-stop reference encompasses the full spectrum of surgical and nonoperative interventions—from early treatments to modern novel growth modulation techniques. In this second edition, each chapter has been updated and several new ones have been added, reflecting current literature, practice, and expert perspective. Throughout the book, masters share clinical pearls and firsthand knowledge on managing diverse types of adolescent idiopathic spinal deformity, with the common goal of improved patient outcomes.
Innovative topics include teamwork and safety in spine surgery, halo traction for large curves, anterior growth modulation, intraoperative neuromonitoring, and kyphosis restoration in scoliosis surgery
Surgical chapters follow a consistent layout, encompassing rationales, techniques, and outcomes
Postoperative chapters feature discussion of long-term clinical and radiographic outcomes, infections, complications, and rapid post-op recovery
A wealth of illustrations enhance the reader's knowledge of specific techniques
This comprehensive textbook is essential reading for orthopaedic and neurosurgical residents, fellows, and researchers. Young spine surgeons embarking on their careers and senior surgeons who wish to remain up-to-date on new techniques for treating adolescent idiopathic scoliosis will also benefit from this illuminating resource.

Presents evidence-based information on idiopathic scoliosis treatment and outcomes
Based on over a decade of research and observation conducted by the members of the Harms Study Group and other spinal deformity experts from around the world, this must-have clinical reference provides focused coverage of the most current evaluation and treatment guidelines for idiopathic scoliosis. It draws on case studies to guide readers through specific surgical and nonoperative approaches to the multiple types of adolescent idiopathic spinal deformity, including practical information on the rationale for each approach, techniques, and results.
In-depth information culled from vast clinical data of world-renowned experts in the Harms Study Group
Curve assessment and treatment recommendations listed by curve type and pattern - Comprehensive discussion of pathogenesis and epidemiology, osteobiologics for spinal fusion, anesthesia for scoliosis surgery, surgical complications, and more
Chapters on key treatment decisions, such as the selection of fusion levels, that teach readers how to critically address clinical questions
More than 600 high-quality illustrations, including numerous full-color clinical photographs, detailed line drawings, and complementary high-resolution radiographs
This state-of-the-art text is ideal for orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and spine fellows, and is an invaluable companion for any practitioner involved in the surgical and nonsurgical care of patients with spinal deformity.
Modern Management of Spinal Deformities: A Theoretical, Practical, and Evidence-based Text (1st Edition)Go to this book
Authored by two world-renowned pioneers in the field of spinal surgery, Modern Management of Spinal Deformities: A Theoretical, Practical, and Evidence-Based Text covers the range of spinal deformities-emphasizing scoliosis-and their etiologies, including idiopathic, congenital, neuromuscular, tumors, neurofibromatosis, and more.
All too often in other works, too much attention has been focused on how to put in metalwork, without sufficiently discussing the what, when, and why. Authors Dickson and Harms provide a wealth of knowledge through experience that shows how important newer therapeutic concepts and surgical methods are, such that beyond just preventing the progression of deformity, it is now possible, with correctly performed surgery, to eliminate deformity and straighten spines permanently.
Evidence-based diagnostic and treatment concepts, emphasis on an understanding of the scientific principles providing the basis for good practice
Superbly illustrated with many radiographs, CT images, and drawings
Special newer surgical techniques, such as the anterior approach to the spine
Spine surgeons, whether orthopaedically or neurosurgically trained, will value this authoritative treatise on spinal deformities.
