Authored by a team of expert clinicians and neurosurgery trainees who earned top scores on their exams, this edition distills the current knowledge of the neurosciences and essential information for clinical practice. Six chapters provide comprehensive coverage of core concepts in anatomy, physiology, pathology, radiology, neurology, neurosurgery, and critical care.
Features of the second edition:
Concise descriptions aid rapid review of key concepts
Bullet-point format enhances ease of use and facilitates comprehension
Up-to-date coverage of classic symptoms and signs of common neurosurgical diseases
Current information related to the genetic basis of neurosurgical conditions

From the Author
I wrote this book using the notes that I scribbled down while studying for the neurosurgery oral board examination. This book is not intended to serve as a replacement for the classic neurosurgical texts, but as a supplement to the knowledge gained during the long years of residency and in the early stages of practice. I tried to focus on the major aspects of diseases that a neurosurgeon may encounter, both in clinical practice and on the examination. For a more thorough helping of knowledge, consider thumbing through the texts in the reference list. My favorite is Comprehensive Neurosurgical Board Review, but I may be a little biased. That book was geared for the written boards, but the anatomy, pathology/radiology, neurology, and neurosurgery sections provide useful information that is not covered in this text. I must admit that I was a tad intimidated by the oral examination before I lived through it. I expected hear “So Dr. Citow can you please show me the incision for the hypoglossal-pundendal nerve anastomsas used for people who constantly speak out of their asses…” But it really was a fair test and a surprisingly pleasant experience. I truly got the sense that the examiners are out to reinforce their preconceived notion that the examinee (you) is indeed competent (not the other way around) and makes reasonable decisions. They are not out to trick you with obscure details. Stay relaxed and suggest exactly what you would do in everyday practice (not at the Mayo Clinic) and all will be fine. The only disheartening aspect of the test is that none of the examiners smile (but this may be their baseline state) or acknowledge that you are correct, but neither do your patients in the hospital, unless they have been on the Internet. . . . Good luck! –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
