In a specialized field such as neurosurgery, highly specific knowledge is required. Training programs in the EU vary, making it difficult to standardize medical training. This manual forms the basis for a European consensus in neurosurgery. It is written for residents, students and physicians with a special interest in neurosurgery. Diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are detailed according to localization (cranial, spinal, peripheral nerves) with special consideration given to congenital defects and pediatric neurosurgical disorders, functional and stereotactic neurosurgery, as well as critical neurosurgical care. Each chapter contains the basics of anatomy and physiology. The book is well-organized and clearly structured according to each entity and its neurosurgical treatment options. A better understanding of specific neurosurgical problems will help practicing neurosurgeons provide better medical care for their patients, and will also provide the neurosurgery resident with a reliable European standard for step-by-step management of neurosurgical problems, which will prove useful when preparing for the board examination.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Neurosurgery fills a niche as a consensus curriculum text suitable for medical students, residents, and physicians seeking a succinct, thoughtful, comprehensive, and logical reference. This well-illustrated paperback, a cross between a handbook and a comprehensive text, is a great value published by Springer as part of the European Manual of Medicine series. . the general target for the book is students . . The text also provides excellent coverage of a number of disciplines closely related to neurosurgery . ." (Deborah L. Benzil, Journal of the American Medical Association, January, 2011)"The target readers would be mainly trainees neurosurgery residents, students, and specialized clinicians . . It is written in a simple and comprehensive language with several headings and subheading in order to give the required information in a brief, condensed, comprehensive, and concise manner. . it is a great book for practitioner as well as for trainees written in simple understandable language covering the basics to the most advance aspects of neurosurgery. It can be definitely recommended as a nearly complete guideline for neurosurgical trainees."­­­ (Raj Kumar, Child's Nervous System, Vol. 26, June, 2010)
