Evidence-Based Neurosurgery provides examples of the use of critical analysis and methodologically rigorous evidence synthesis techniques in neurosurgery. This book is specifically designed to teach the neurosurgeon how to approach the questions and complications that arise in the daily practice. The first section of the text describes the basic concepts and techniques of evidence-based medicine as applied to neurosurgery. The second part provides examples of common clinical questions, for example, What is the likely course of the patient's disease? The text's useful review of the methods of evidence-based medicine will offer you the opportunity to become as scientific in the practice of neurosurgery as in the fundamental knowledge that underlies it.
