The Neurosurgeon's Handbook is compact, readable, multi-authored, extensively illustrated and authoritative source of high quality neurosurgical information; it is the ultimate companion to neurosurgical trainees and neurosurgeons around the world. Based on the curriculum of British, North American and European neurosurgical training programmes, and with the contribution of some of the worlds leading neurosurgeons and neuroclinicians, the Neurosurgeon's Handbook has been produced with the highest possible standards. The Neurosurgeon's Handbook concisely covers all aspects of adult and paediatric neurosurgery. It is systematically, meticulously and clearly broken down into easy-to-follow sections that contain condensed but comprehensive neurosurgical information. Over 18 sections and 113 chapters, all critical neurosurgical information is systematically presented to include clear definitions; epidemiology, pathophysiology and mechanisms of disease; neuroradiological and neuropathological features; critical care and neuroanaesthesia; clinical presentation and differential diagnosis; treatment; critical surgical anatomy and step-by-step key operative techniques of the brain, skull base and spine. The material is based on clinical trials, major clinical series and the extensive personal experience of some of the worlds best neurosurgeons and neuroclinicians who contributed to the handbook. Hundreds of imaging studies, neuropathological photographs (some in full colour) and anatomical and surgical diagrams supplement the text which is methodically organised to allow understanding of all complex neurosurgical concepts of adult and paediatric neurosurgery. Widely accepted practice guidelines, major classification schemes, commonly used neurological scales, significant syndromes and constellation of key signs and symptoms are found in 188 tables, presented in a way easy to understand and remember.

It is always difficult to edit or write a concise yet thorough handbook of neurosurgery and it is difficult to cover every topic in great detail and stay within the limits of a handbook that weighs not too much in your pocket. This book managed just to do that...and at GBP69.95, good value for money. * Surgeon's News *
We are reinventing neurosurgery from moment to moment. During this process we are reinventing the neurosurgeon! Yet, the essential elements, which are clearly presented between these covers, represent the required grounding of the information base for the practice of neurosurgery for all. Samandouras and a luminary group of neuro-clinicians have done a thorough job in attending to this complex task. * Michael L. J. Apuzzo, Edwin M Todd Professor of Neurological Surgery, Radiation Oncology, Biology and Physics Los Angeles, USA Editor-in-Chief, 'Neurosurgery' and 'Operative Neurosurgery' *
This book is a comprehensive summary of neurosurgery. It covers almost every topic in a concise text. I think this is an excellent book for trainees, it is very pleasant to read. * Acta Neurochir *
