    Robotic spine surgery is one of the fastest growing segments of the spine surgery market. Surgeons specialising in spine surgery are highly motivated to learn and improve their understanding of the indications,application,and future clinical scope of using new technological platforms. Spinal surgeons face time pressures but are hungry for new ways to effectively treat patients. This book presents information in the case study format. By using examples of surgical cases of an advanced nature (e.g. spinal deformity, minimally invasive surgery, combinatorial technology using the robot) this will differ from other texts. Each case study is written by a well-respected expert in the field and represents that surgeon’s most monumental case. Each case contains a concise patient history with indications, contraindications and insights to help the reader assimilate expert knowledge. The case studies examine both the unique and technical aspects of robotic planning and surgical execution, and include seminal bullet point sections: Key take away points; Tips and pearls to avoid pitfalls; and "how I could have done this better.” This new text provides valuable and practical knowledge for spine surgeons and others involved in robotic surgery.
