About this book


This book covers spinal, cranial and peripheral nerve surgeries. Each chapter has a uniform format for ease of reading, including a description of the problem, a literature summary and analysis, and conclusions made using evidence-based medicine (including the GRADE method).

The scientific evidence for a selection of neurosurgical procedures for well-known pathologic entities is thoroughly summarized and analysed in order to provide an overview of the efficacy and effectiveness of procedures in relation to the target patient population.

Evidence for Neurosurgery: Effective Procedures & Treatment  is aimed at a professional audience of junior and consultant neurosurgeons, researchers in the

area, and policy makers.
