Principles of Stereotactic Radiosurgery is the only contemporary, comprehensive reference for neurosurgeons and radiation oncologists using Gamma Knife and Linear Accelerator technology. Each chapter includes specific case presentations representative of the most commonly treated conditions, including applications for spinal disorders. Chapters conclude with counterpoint experiences, oriented to treatment options other than radiosurgery (i.e., medical management, standard surgery). These counterpoint discussions are written by noted experts and address in greater detail the indications, results and complications of their approach and enable readers to improve decision making with regard to choosing treatment options for their own patients. Also included is information on important non-surgical aspects of radiosurgery, including site construction, regulatory and billing issues, legal concerns, and nursing care issues. The editors have treated over 3000 patients using this technology, and international contributors share their experience as well.

This is an outstanding contribution to the field of stereotactic radiosurgery and should be on the shelf of all neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, and medical physicists who treat patients using this modality. It also should be mandatory for all medical libraries." (Al Taira, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2008)
