Essential Neurosurgery, 3rd Edition (1405116412) cover image
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.

"What it lacks in colour, it more than makes up with some fantastic diagrams, pictures and scans showing the important pathology of a number of core problems. It guides the reader from clinical presentation all the way through to postoperative care. Definitely worth a look."
