Buy “Instructional Courses Lectures Spine”

By Sandra Lee Berner

The new kid on the AAOS Orthopaedic Resource Catalog’s block is the Instructional Course Lectures Spine. So, if spine is your specialty or area of interest, if you want an expert review or you’re preparing for exams, put this book’s compilation of expert opinion on your shopping list.

Covering virtually all areas of spine surgery and edited by Howard S. An, MD, the 322-page hard cover text is organized by anatomical spine sections. Each section is preceded by an in-depth and informative commentary on each of the selected articles from some of today’s premier spine surgeons.

This specialized publication gathers selected lectures of the most respected spine surgeons who have presented their findings and shared best-practice information at the Academy’s Instructional Course Lectures over the past several years.

“This is the first in what will be a regular series of specialty ICLs designed for those who want to focus their instructional course lectures experience,” explains Marilyn Fox, PhD, director, department of publications. “Given the popularity of our Orthopaedic Knowledge Update: Spine and other review materials in spine, this topic was a natural first choice.”

The AAOS member cost of the book is $75; residents’ cost: $60. You can also contact AAOS Customer Service at (800) 626-6726 to order the book.
