Part of the Neurosurgery by Example series, this volume on pediatric neurosurgery presents exemplary cases in which renowned authors guide readers through the assessment and planning, decision making, surgical procedure, after care, and complication management of common and uncommon disorders. As pediatric neurosurgery approximates the anatomical and pathophysiological breadth of all specialty areas of adult neurosurgery, the cases provided are exemplary of those that are more relevant to, and seen in higher frequency, in pediatrics. The cases also demonstrate presentation and management appropriate for pediatrics, as both are distinct in pediatric compared to adult neurosurgery.

Each chapter also contains 'pivot points' that illuminate changes required to manage patients in alternate or atypical situations, and pearls for accurate diagnosis, successful treatment, and effective complication management. Containing a focused review of medical evidence and expected outcomes, Pediatric Neurosurgery is appropriate for neurosurgeons who wish to learn more about a subspecialty, and those preparing for the American Board of Neurological Surgery oral examination.

• Covers a wide range of pediatric neurosurgery topics and authored by a group of the field's leading experts
• Each chapter includes pivot points and clinical pearls that allow readers to broaden their understanding of the field
• Appropriate for neurosurgeons who wish to learn more about pediatric neurosurgery, and those preparing for the American Board of Neurological Surgery oral examination

• Dr Nathan Selden, hair of Neurological Surgery and President of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, Oregon Health and Science University, and Edited.
