Here's the reference the "Journal of Neurosurgery" called 'a welcome and most useful addition' and 'definitely worth the price' - back in a meticulously revised and updated new edition! Once again, it examines indications, operative techniques, complications, and results for nearly every neurosurgical procedure. A new co-editor, 31 new chapters, and a new standardized format make it essential to today's practitioner.


"The chapters feature introductory material about the history of the technique, followed by clearly presented treatment of the various surgical techniques, non-surgical treatments, complications, outcomes, and a full list of references. The volumes are heavily illustrated with b&w plates and a group of color plates." -- SciTech Book News, March 2006
