Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Essential Neurosurgery provides a comprehensive introduction to neurosurgery for junior surgical trainees and medical students. The book concentrates on the principles of neurosurgical diagnosis and management of the more common central nervous system problems, including an understanding of neurology and the pathological basis of neurological disease. There is also coverage of neurosurgical techniques and postoperative patient management.

This new edition brings the text fully up to date and includes many of the biological and technological advances made in the field of neurosurgery that have improved surgical possibilities and patient outcomes.
