...the reason this new edition is particularly unique and appealing, is the incredible reorganization. Each section is consciously split-up to be both more comprehensive and more concise. A concerted effort has been made to have each section organized into parallel subsections for ease of reading throughout....Overall, Handbook of Neurosurgery is one of the most important texts in neurosurgery. -- World Neurosurgery
There are, of course, many books on neurosurgery available, but to this reviewer, Dr. Greenberg's newest edition is highly useful and the best way for a neuroradiologist to have at his/her finger tips a complete overview of the field. -- ANJR Blog
An outstanding backpack reference for day-to-day neurosurgical practice
Now in an updated eighth edition, the Handbook of Neurosurgery has enjoyed legendary status on the bookshelf of every neurosurgery department for over a quarter of a century. Renowned for its scope and accessibility, the portable, single-volume guide is an invaluable resource for anyone involved in the care of patients with disorders of the central nervous system – neurosurgical residents, nurses, neurologists, and allied healthcare practitioners.
This classic handbook covers the full depth and breadth of the complex field of neurosurgery – including inherited and acquired neurological disorders, developmental anomalies, and more esoteric topics such as toxins that impact the central nervous system. The text also covers conditions treated primarily by neurologists that may come to the attention of a neurosurgical care provider such as Parkinsonism, multiple sclerosis, motor neuron diseases, and dementia. The latest information is provided on anatomy and physiology, differential diagnosis, and current principles of nonsurgical and surgical management covering the full age continuum – from pediatric to geriatric conditions.
