Part of the second edition of the classic Neurosurgical Operative Atlas series, Functional Neurosurgery provides step-by-step guidance on the innovative and established techniques for managing epilepsy, pain, and movement disorders. This atlas covers the current surgical procedures, providing concise descriptions of indications and surgical approaches, as well as recommendations for how to avoid and manage postoperative complications. The authors describe the underlying physiological principles and state-of-the art recording techniques that are used for brain localization. This edition addresses topics that are rarely covered in other texts, including motor cortex stimulation for neuropathic pain, novel technical approaches for insertion of deep brain stimulator electrodes, and radiosurgery for movement disorders.


  • New chapters on the evolving indications for deep brain stimulation, frameless neuronavigation techniques, and interventional MRI-guided treatments
  • More than 650 high-quality images demonstrating anatomy and surgical steps
  • Consistent format in all chapters to enhance ease of use

Ideal for neurosurgeons and residents, this operative atlas is a practical surgical guide that will serve as both a reference and a refresher prior to performing a specific procedure.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
Description: Since publication of the first edition of this atlas in late 1990s and early 2000s, significant development has occurred in functional neurosurgery, in particular regarding target accuracy and imaging technology. This book is a representation and summary of the progress in this area.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an update on functional neurosurgery strategies, methods, technology, and possible complications.
Audience: Neurologists, neuroradiologists, radiation oncologists, and neurosurgeons are the intended audience.
Features: This update covers concepts of frameless stereotaxy, magnetic resonance imaging guidance, radiosurgery, and deep brain stimulation. Divided into three main areas — epilepsy, pain, and movement disorders — the book describes techniques, surgical indications, possible and expected complications, and ways to avoid them. Leading experts relate their personal experiences to provide a real-life look at the management of complex scenarios in functional neurosurgery. The second edition was needed due to the significant developments in the field over the past decade that have allowed precise treatment of conditions that would otherwise continue to plague patients.
Assessment: This is a masterpiece of artistry and clinical information on the comprehensive approach required for surgery for pain, epilepsy, movement disorders, and other conditions. It is an essential update to the classic neurosurgical operative atlas series and should be in major neurosurgical, neurological, and general medical libraries.
