Description

This comprehensive volume for neurosurgeons provides a concise and affordable discussion of the entire range of surgical treatments available for movement disorders, such as Parkinson's disease, tremor, dystonia, and Huntington's disease. Background information about functional neurosurgery and stereotaxy (a functional neurosurgical method of destroying deep-seated brain structures) is included. Also covered are new techniques to electrically monitor locations in the brain and treatment options for patients who do not respond to medications. Contributors to this clinically focused book include internationally recognized authorities from North America and Europe
