New York/Stuttgart – There are hundreds of different variations of instruments used in neurosurgical procedures with new iterations being developed on an ongoing basis to enhance surgical techniques and outcomes. Having a firm handle on the names, nuances and functions of these instruments is both a complex and critical competency for those training to be neurosurgeons and those health professionals supporting in the OR.
“The Neurosurgical Instrument Guide,” just published by Thieme, provides a much-needed baseline reference for visual identification of surgical instruments and their intended use in specific neurosurgical procedures. It facilitates a unique learning experience for medical students, interns, residents, surgical technicians, nurses, and other neurosurgical support staff, as well as for neurosurgeons who want to educate their team about basic instrumentation encountered in the operating room.
“This unique, detailed guide [is] a must read for young neurosurgeons and the gold standard reference for all neurosurgical operative services.” – Duke Samson, MD, Professor and Chairman, Department of Neurological Surgery, Southwestern Medical School
Complete with an overview of basic operating room principles and instrument sets, “The Neurosurgical Instrument Guide” provides a solid background on instrumentation, covering over 200 core instruments, as well as a lasting and progressively stronger comfort level for those working in the neurosurgical operating room.
