Neurosurgery is a rapidly developing and technically demanding branch of surgery that requires a detailed knowledge of the basic neuro-sciences and a thorough clinical approach. The Oxford Textbook of Neurological Surgery is an up-to-date, objective and readable text that covers the full scope of neurosurgical practice. It is part of the Oxford Textbooks in Surgery series, edited by Professor Sir Peter Morris. The book is split into 20 overarching sections (Principles of Neurosurgery, Neuro-oncology of Intrinsic Tumours; Extra-axial Tumours and Skull Lesions; Cerebro-Pontine Angle Tumours; Sellar and Supra-Sellar Tumours; Posterior Fossa Tumours; Pineal tumours; Uncommon Tumours and Tumour Syndromes; Neurotrauma and Intensive Care; Vascular Neurosurgery; Principles of Spinal Surgery; Spinal Pathology; Spinal Trauma; Peripheral Nerve Surgery; Functional Neurosurgery; Epilepsy; Paediatric Neurosurgery; Neurosurgery for Cerebrospinal Fluid Disorders and Neurosurgical Infection). Each section takes a dual approach with, 'Generic Surgical Management' chapters that focus on specific clinical problems facing the neurosurgeon (e.g. sellar/supra-sellar tumour, Intradural Spina Tumours etc.) and 'Pathology-Specific' chapters (e.g. Glioma, Meningeal Tumours, Scoliosis and Spinal Deformity, Aneurysm etc.). Where appropriate, this division provides the reader with easily accessible information for both clinical problems which present in a regional fashion and specific pathologies. The generic chapters cover aspects such as operative approaches, neuroanatomy and nuances. Specifically each chapter in the book incorporates several strands. Firstly the fundamental neuroscience (anatomy, pathology, genetics etc.) that underlies the clinical practice. Secondly, a review of the requisite clinical investigations (e.g. angiography, electrodiagnostics, radiology). Thirdly, a thorough evidence based review of clinical practice. Following this a consideration of the key debates and controversies in the field with 'pro-' and 'con-' sections (e.g. minimally invasive spine surgery, microsurgical treatment of aneurysms) is provided. A summary of the key papers and clinical scales relevant to neurosurgery form the concluding part. The book is a 'one-stop' text for trainees and consultants in neurosurgery, residents, those preparing for sub-specialty exams and other professionals allied to surgery who need to gain an understanding of the field. It acts as both a point of reference to provide a focussed refresher for the experienced neurosurgeon as well as a trusted training resource.

The central nervous system comprises the brain and spinal cord. Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system. It deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of conditions and diseases involving the central and peripheral nervous system.The evaluation of a patient with neurological disorder involves history taking and the neurological examination: clinical evaluation. The information obtained from the clinical evaluation is important to determine where the problem exists in the nervous system: the key process in developing the differential diagnosis. This process however is considered difficult because of the sheer complexity of the nervous system and hence dreaded by medical students all over the world. Clinical Neurology Made Easy is a book on history taking and examination in Neurology. It outlines the logical order of evaluating a patient with a neurological disorder. The first part of the book details the history taking in neurology noting the significance of the symptoms. The second part continues with the neurological examination dedicating a chapter to each aspect of the nervous system for clearer and easier assimilation. Certain examinations which are no longer popular are also described as they still give important information regarding the diagnosis. The challenge of evaluating the unconscious patient necessitates the dedication of a chapter to the unconscious patient in this book.In addition, there has been an overreliance in investigations in recent times to make a diagnosis irrespective of the fact that a great percentage of diagnosis in neurology can be made by good clinical acumen. Clinical Neurology Made Easy is therefore a reminder of the importance of a detailed methodical clinical evaluation. It also gives assurance to doctors and neurologists in poor resource settings that the diagnosis of neurological disorders is not impossible but rather, it is within reach with good clinical evaluation.
