New York/Stuttgart – Preparing to become a board-certified neurosurgeon is a daunting endeavor… With the longest residency training program of all medical specialties, seven years, and then many individuals doing at least an additional year fellowship, the knowledge base for clinical practice is huge. A majority of neurosurgical trainees find value in resources that provide quick answers to common questions as they work toward the day when clinical knowledge recall is second nature. One such new resource that trainees can rely upon is “The Essential Neurosurgery Companion,” recently published by Thieme.

Presented in a highly efficient question-and-answer format, this new guide is designed for quick referencing of key concepts encountered in neurosurgical practice. With a strong focus on the realities residents face each day, the book covers practical issues such as how to apply to residency programs, what to do during rounds, and how to examine patients, as well as more advanced clinical topics in all areas of neurosurgical management.

"The world of neurosurgery is ever expanding. Today it includes not only scientific medical and surgical aspects but legal, societal, governmental, administrative and economic dimensions. These latter are not often addressed in our literature. This book does so and also describes the life of the neurosurgical resident from the application process to the experience on call, and even provides hints for preparation for board examinations." – From the Foreword by Leonard Kranzler, MD

Residents involved in the practice of neurosurgery around the globe will want this compelling guide in their armamentarium, whether for daily rounds or preparing for boards. Clinicians will find it a valuable resource to consult in everyday practice.
