"The authors have definitely achieved their goal of providing a reference that is easy for both the expert surgeon and the neurosurgeon in training to consult in daily clinical practice ."-Child's Nervous System This important work - featuring complete information on all cranial approaches and techniques, and more than 2000 four-color photographs- marks a new level of achievement in neurosurgery publishing.

Superbly conceived and designed, CRANIAL MICROSURGERY leads the neurosurgeon through each procedure in step-by-step detail, and brings together complete coverage of both surgical anatomy and real operative cases. This synthesis of anatomical information and extensive case-based data (including diagnostic histories, radiographic images, and intraoperative photographs) sets the book apart from other works in the field, and will be helpful to neurosurgeons at all levels.
