From the Author: I was recently asked what the main differences were between the 8th edition of the Handbook of Neurosurgery and the previous 7th edition. While it is easy to point to the new section on endovascular neurosurgery, and to mention the updates in molecular genetics of brain tumors as well as the hundreds of content updates throughout the book, I feel that one of the most significant differences is in the organization of the book. Hundreds of hours of work were spent by myself, Dr. Michael Wachinger, and countless others to reorganize the book into approximately one hundred roughly equal sized sections that would provide a quantum of information that would be meaningful but not overwhelming. The hierarchy of section headings has also been simplified and streamlined. I feel this has resulted in a better organized, more useful reference that will also translate well to digital format. I hope you like it!
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.
…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
Alot of the complaints in the reviews about this book are that “It is too slow”, and “It is too difficult to read.” Guess what! This is not The Hunger Games or The Twilight Series. This is actual literature from over 100 years ago. Yes it takes work to get through the dialogue. It is not exactly a page turner in that regard. But if you can be patient, and “get into the groove’ of the dialect, then you will soon be able to read through the conversation with less effort. It is rewarding! Of course, I am reading this as an adult, and because I chose to do so, and not for a homework assignment. I am glad I took the time to do so, because this to me is what literature is all about. It’s rewarding – not just a book you cruise through in two days, and then give it to your 10 year old who also reads it in two days. There is a lot of social commentary, as well as commentary about the inherent decency of man, and what we do to screw up our kids along the way. Critics are correct, this is not a children’s book. It just happens to be about a child. Mark Twain was a masterful writer. I hope you take the time to work through this book. Also, the Dover Thrift version does not appear to be censored – as some of the other books are purported to be.
