Here is the first book to lead you through operative exposures of all the major peripheral nerves in the body using actual dissections. Covering patient positioning, relevant anatomy, and surgical exposures of both the upper and lower extremities, it provides the step-by-step approach and visual orientation needed to effectively map out a surgical strategy. Special features:The first book to use full-color actual dissections as an operative guide to peripheral nerve surgeryIn-depth coverage of all related anatomyValuable information on nerves such as brachial plexus, axillary, ulnar, femoral, sciatic, tibial, plantar, and many othersPearls and pitfalls that offer valuable tips and insights from the author's extensive clinical experienceCombining the graphic strength of an atlas with the procedural guidelines of a text, this book is ideal for neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, and general surgeons who need to refresh their memory on a specific exposure, as well as a useful primer on operative steps for beginners. It is also a valuable board review and course book for neurosurgery residents who are required to have a full understanding of the peripheral nervous system.
