New York/Stuttgart - Thieme Publishers and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons are pleased to announce the publication of Pediatric Neurosurgery, 2nd Edition, edited by James Tait Goodrich, M.D., Ph.D., D.Sci.. This fully-updated, visually- driven surgical atlas includes almost 400 illustrations. Step-by-step, it guides the reader through general and complex pediatric procedures and is an ideal reference for neurosurgeons, pediatric surgeons, and residents preparing for board examinations.
"The surgical atlas uses detailed color drawings and illustrations to clearly direct the surgeon in a neurosurgical operation. Many leading practitioners in pediatric neurosurgery have contributed their expertise to this volume," says Dr. Goodrich. In this new edition, the editor and contributors address advances that have been made in surgical approaches while also offering guidance on skin incision, operative exposure, patient positioning, and opening and closing techniques.
