Editorial Reviews

Review

"What it lacks in colour, it more than makes up with some fantastic diagrams, pictures and scans showing the important pathology of a number of core problems. It guides the reader from clinical presentation all the way through to postoperative care. Definitely worth a look."

- Black Bag. Bristol Medical School Magazine. Winter 2005

Review quotations from the previous edition

 

‘flowing and well highlighted text keeps the reader interested in the subject’

From the Back Cover

Essential Neurosurgery provides a comprehensive introduction to neurosurgery for junior surgical trainees and medical students. The book concentrates on the principles of neurosurgical diagnosis and management of the more common central nervous system problems, including an understanding of neurology and the pathological basis of neurological disease. There is also coverage of neurosurgical techniques and postoperative patient management.

This new edition brings the text fully up to date and includes many of the biological and technological advances made in the field of neurosurgery that have improved surgical possibilities and patient outcomes.

Format: Paperback
Kaye provides a concise introduction to neurosurgery with good coverage of major topics. Chapters are short and enable the student to read while on rounds. Ideally, you would supplement the reading with a true text or original articles. Nevertheless, a good first start.

This book has exactly what it promises, the essentials. This reads more like a brief text book over view of topics rather than a how to like the Handbook of Neurosurgery does. It still has its place however as it has a great section in the beginning explaining imaging. It also has good info as far as mortality rates and the like for the conditions listed. It explains the topics (many of which were not covered in my PA program) in a way that any practitioner with a higher than novice level of medicine can understand.

I read this book cover to cover before starting my Neurosurgery subinternship and it really gave me a great overview for the patients I saw in clinic and cases I scrubbed on. The text flows nicely and it is easy to get through in a couple days, yet detailed enough so you can sound intelligent when talking about the topics. Good illustrations too. I would say this is a good read before the rotation starts, and then I recommend Handbook of Neurosurgery while on the rotation for specific cases.

Format: Paperback
This is the original essential neurosurgery handbook that your junior attendings may have used while in medical school or in residency. It covers all of the basics and gives you a step ahead. The chapters are short and well organized. Nevertheless, a second edition has been published and is recommended over this edition.
