This book presents neurosurgical anatomy by detailing approaches on cadavers in the same position patients would be placed in during a real operative procedure. Anatomy is described in:
- all commonly used cranial and cranial base approaches
- anterior, posterior, anterolateral and posterolateral approaches to all segments of the spine
- all commonly performed procedures on peripheral nerves
- endoscopic approaches to cranial and spinal neurosurgery
Stresses the understanding of the anatomy rather than the performance of the procedure.
