Abstract

Knowledge of the contributions to spine surgery made over time provides us with the context of understanding current surgical techniques and the success that this area has had over the years. In this work the author carried out a search for the historical milestones that marked the course of spinal surgery, which represented an arduous work by great figures of medicine, starting from Egyptian mythology, passing through the Greek, Arabian, the Renaissance, until the Modern Age and the development of minimally invasive surgery.
