Review:

Written by the 'Who's Who' of neurosurgery. The very first chapter...by Dr. Albert L. Rhoton Jr. is a must-read...

Each chapter is richly illustrated with detailed yet simple graphics that communicate the salient issues of each procedure. [Illustrators] Jennifer Pryll and Tony Pazos...are to be commended for their high-quality work and the impact of their contributions throughout the text. ...A typical Thieme textbook with the standard dark blue and silver cover graphic...of high-quality..this text is a good value and should be strongly considered as a meaningful addition to one's collection of basic neurosurgical textbooks.--Journal of NeurosurgeryWritten by authoritative educators in their respective fields to produce an exemplary operative brain atlas...very well organized...The individual chapters are concise yet highly informative. The organization of each chapter allows for a quick review on relevant anatomy, anesthetic considerations, surgical indications, surgical technique, complications, and postoperative care, with a succinct conclusion. The sections on surgical indication give a detailed step-by-step approach, highlighting pitfalls and also management of intraoperative complications. The illustrations are straightforward and easy to follow without sacrificing useful detail...This book is a must for any neurosurgical library.--Otology & NeurotologyA comprehensive review of the topic...with superb drawings and graphs and references...a superb piece of work...This is an excellent source of information...a must in any neurosurgical library.--Doody's ReviewVolume 1: Brain and Volume 2: Spine, lays out in artist's color drawings, line diagrams, intraoperative photographs, radiographs, and in an easily digestible written format the breadth and scope of virtually every neurosurgical procedure...The illustrations...are highly educational and allow nonsurgeons to understand the approaches to various lesions and the potential pitfalls one many encounter in the operating room..Imaging is abundant...both volumes can help fill a need for practicing neuroradiology and in training programs in neuroradiology.--American Journal of Neuroradiology
