Published Reviews

"The chapters feature introductory material about the history of the technique, followed by clearly presented treatment of
the various surgical techniques, non-surgical treatments, complications, outcomes, and a full list of references. The volumes are heavily illustrated with b&w plates and a group of color plates." -- SciTech Book News, March 2006

'We all know the Schmidek and Sweet. It has the reputation of being a user-friendly guide to surgical plans for working neurosurgeons, a source of advancing knowledge and expertise for students, trainees, and practitioners, and an overview of information useful to take to the operating room. While maintaining the book's characteristic systematic approach since the first edition, the new editor, Dr. Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa, has added new sections to reflect the changes since the previous edition. Most of the new sections involve pediatric neurosurgery, endovascular surgery, spine and skull base minimally invasive techniques, and peripheral nerves. The legacy of Schmidek and Sweet continues, thanks to the expertise of Dr. Quinones-Hinojosa and the renowned neurosurgeons who contributed to this edition.' - Ramsis Farid Ghaly, MD, FACS(Ghaly Neurosurgical Associates) Doody 5 stars!
