Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

New techniques and devices in the field of spinal surgery are widespread and have improved outcomes, especially in pain relief and quality of life. However, in an aging society, a crucial issue is the validation of the safety of new techniques and devices and the prevention of perioperative complications after spinal surgery. The benefits of these advances in reducing complications such as surgical site infection, postoperative delirium, epidural hematoma, and neurological deficits, as well as future directions in spinal surgery, will be explored in this Special Issue.
