Dr. Härtl and Dr. Navarro-Ramirez Publish MIS Spine Text

Dr. Roger Härtl and Dr. Rodrigo Navarro-Ramirez, along with a roster of world-class expert contributors, have published the ultimate resource for surgeons wishing to master minimally invasive techniques. The book, Essential Step-by-Step Techniques for Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery, was edited by Dr. Härtl and Dr. Rodrigo Navarro-Ramirez, a neurosurgeon from Mexico who has worked with Dr. Härtl since 2015.  Chapter authors include master spine surgeons from around the world who describe the nuances of how they use a wide variety of techniques in their practices.

Considered the most comprehensive and detailed textbook on this topic, Essential Step-by-Step Techniques for Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery is built on the foundation of “the six T’s” of MISS: Target, Technology, Technique, Training, Testing, and Talent. Its 57 chapters include details on everything from indications/contraindications and anatomy through operating room set-up, step-by-step techniques, and postoperative care. It includes high-quality figures that illustrate different approaches, emphasizing the importance of mastering anatomy as a key component of MISS. The e-book version includes helpful videos that complement the printed book.
