Part of the Neurosurgery by Example series, this volume on peripheral nerve disorders 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. The cases are divided into four distinct areas of peripheral nerve pathology: entrapment and inflammatory neuropathies, peripheral nerve pain syndromes, peripheral nerve tumors, and peripheral nerve trauma.
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, Peripheral Nerve 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.

• Applicable and relevant across diverse subspecialties and disciplines, including plastic surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, psysiatrists, pain anesthesiologists, and physical/occupational therapists
• Contributors list reflects the increasingly multi-disciplinary practice of peripheral nerve surgery
• Case-based approach helps readers think through diagnosis and management of both common and challenging peripheral nerve pathologies

• Dr Thomas Wilson, Clinical Assistant Professor; Co-Director, Center for Peripheral Nerve Surgery; Department of Neurosurgery, Stanford University. Thomas J. Wilson, MD is currently Clinical Assistant Professor and Co-Director of the Center for Peripheral Nerve Surgery at Stanford University. He earned his MD from the University of Nebraska College of Medicine, where he was awarded a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Research Training Fellowship. He completed his residency in neurological surgery at the University of Michigan and a fellowship in peripheral nerve surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. His research interests include peripheral nerve outcomes research, advancing options for patients with peripheral nerve pathologies, and translational research focused on deriving methods for data-driven intraoperative decision making using intraoperative electrophysiology, advanced imaging techniques, and genetic expression information.
• Dr Lynda J-S Yang, Professor, Department of Neurosurgery, University of Michigan, USA. Lynda J-S Yang, MD, PhD graduated from Johns Hopkins Medicine, University of Michigan Neurosurgery, and national / international fellowships in Brachial Plexus and Peripheral Nerve surgery. She serves as a Professor in Neurosurgery at the University of Michigan, as well as the Director of the Interdisciplinary Brachial Plexus and Peripheral Nerve Program, emphasizing clinical expertise and outcomes research. She has co-edited books and co-authored chapters on the topic.
