New York/Stuttgart, September 2010 – According to Dr. George Jallo, Clinical Director of of Pediatric Neurosurgery at The Johns Hopkins University and editor of Controversies in Pediatric Neurosurgery, "Pediatric neurosurgery is becoming increasingly more complex with no 'perfect way to treat the disease process." His recently released book, published by Thieme, helps clinicians make the right choices for their young patients.
Renowned experts from around the world have joined together to write this highly anticipated book that highlights all the major topics in pediatric surgery today. The authors have insightfully presented the various alternatives available for treating and managing specific cranial and spinal disorders in children. The twenty topical subjects covered in this book, illustrate the spectrum of challenging issues in pediatric neurosurgery.
Utilizing a point/counterpoint format, the authors give the pros and cons of disparate treatment options. Controversies in Pediatric Neurosurgery lets readers quickly grasp material and guides medical professionals through steps for discussing treatment options and strategies with patients and their families.
"We hope that this textbook will serve as a reference with its diverse opinions and approaches for all pediatric neurosurgical diseases," states Dr. Jallo.
