New York/Stuttgart – Written by leading skull base surgeons from the renowned House Clinic in Los Angeles, California, "Lateral Skull Base Surgery: The House Clinic Atlas", recently published by Thieme, contains detailed descriptions of the techniques used in lateral skull base surgery. It covers topics ranging from auditory brainstem implants to vestibular schwannoma, providing readers with a comprehensive overview of surgical procedures and techniques used to treat a variety of skull base diseases. Almost 200 illustrations guide the reader through the complexities of lateral skull base surgery, and eight surgical videos provide unique insights and details on surgical techniques.
The legacy of the House Clinic began over 70 years ago with its founding by Howard P. House. Since then over 22,000 doctors have been trained at the Clinic’s facilities.
This atlas offers expertise from some of the most respected surgeons in the world and is an essential resource for otolaryngologists--head and neck surgeons, neurosurgeons, and fellows preparing for and performing lateral skull base surgery.
