I began keeping note cards in my pocket for ready reference.
When those note cards became an unwieldy stack, I began to
think of the value to other residents of turning these notes into a
book. “Quick reference” was the key—and thus The Pocket Spine was

The compilation of this book was influenced by the tremendous
opportunities I had with orthopedic mentors. In medical school my
orthopedic and spine training began with Dr. Marc Asher, with
whom I worked, researched, and published. During my residency and
further training at the University of Kansas, Wichita, I gained a variety

thirty staff orthopedic surgeons. As my focus on orthopedics began to

my fourth year of residency, I spent 6 months at the Shriners Children’s
Hospital in St. Louis, during which I trained with Drs.
Lawrence Lenke and Keith Bridwell. From this experience I gathered
information on scoliosis. In Plano, Texas, I further refined the book’s
content during my spine fellowship at the Texas Back Institute. Again
with a diverse teaching staff, I benefited from the expertise of eleven
spine surgeons, compiling notes on their techniques and sage advice…
