Scoliosis Surgery: The Definitive Patient’s Reference (3rd Edition)

When I was facing scoliosis surgery, this book really helped me to prepare and know what to expect.

It helped me with the difficult decision to have the surgery by explaining the facts without jargon. They say knowledge is power and I think it gave me back some control, as after reading this book I felt I had the confidence and knowledge to have a two-way discussion with my surgeon and ask useful questions.

If you or someone you know may be facing scoliosis surgery then I thoroughly recommend this book.
