Press release from: Thieme Publishers

New York/Stuttgart, July 2010 – “Fundamentals of Operative Techniques in Neurosurgery,” is currently the only portable surgical handbook available to neurosurgeons. This second edition of the bestselling reference expands and improves on the original version.

"In order to maximize portability while minimizing bulkiness, we have organized each section with surgical approaches covered first and then pathology-specific nuances covered in [detail in] subsequent chapters," says author E. Sander Connolly, Jr., MD, Department of Neurological Surgery, Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons.

All common neurosurgery procedures are in this fully updated book which also features more than 40 new chapters and over 200 new illustrations. By using a bullet point layout, the authors have ensured that pertinent information is quickly accessible. 'Pearls,' that highlight and expand on each procedure introduced, appear at the end of each chapter.

Step-by-step, the authors guide readers through common neurosurgery procedures and in the process cover the major operative procedures encountered in daily practice. Succinctly written chapters effectively layout essential clinical information on, for instance, preoperative planning, postoperative care, and complications, all of which are complemented by insights and advice from renowned experts representing every main specialty in the field.

"This book is to the neurosurgeon what the Merck Manual is to general medical practice," states Bennett M. Stein, MD, Professor Emeritus, Columbia University.
