About this Reference Work

This volume covers stereotactic principles and functional stereotaxis. Amongst the stereotactic principles are discussions of frame-based and frameless systems of stereotaxis, image guidance stereotaxis, atlases and the technical aspects of radiosurgery. Within functional neurosurgery, disorders covered include the diagnosis and management of pain, epilepsy, movement disorders and the rediscovered field of surgery for psychiatric disorders.

Andres Lozano, MD, PhD, FRCS, FACS is a 1983 graduate of the Ottawa Faculty of Medicine. He trained in Neurosurgy at McGill University and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Canada in 1990, also earning a PhD in Experimental Medicine in during his residency. He studied stereotactic and functional neurosurgery under Dr. Ron Tasker, at the Toronto Western Hospital, and joined the Neurosurgical Staff at Toronto Western in 1991. He is Professor in the Department of Surgery, and inaugural holder of the Ron Tasker Chair in Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery at the University Health Networks. Dr. Lozano’s awards include a Gold Medal in Surgery from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Canada, the Penfield Award, the Jasper Award, the McKenzie Award, the George Armstrong Peters Award, the Colin Woolf Award and Montreal Neurological Institute Fellows Award.

Gildenberg, M.D., Ph.D. received a B.A. degree in Physiology from the University of Pennsylvania in 1955, his M.D. and M.S. in Neurophysiology from Temple University Medical School in Philadelphia, PA in 1959 followed by a Ph.D. in Neurophysiology from Temple in 1970. He is Director of Houston Stereotactic Concepts, Clinical Professor of Surgery (Neurosurgery) and Clinical Professor of Radiology (Radiation Oncology) at Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. Gildenberg retired from the clinical practice of neurosurgery in October 2001. He is the Past-President of the World Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The beginning chronicles the History of Stereotactic Neurosurgery throughout every culture and nation in the world. … The book if primarily for neurosurgeons. The text is clearly the best that has ever been written for stereotactic surgery.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, August, 2014)

“The main purpose is to address the major advances in this area, particularly related to the technological developments that have been behind the continuous progress in the field in the 60 years since its introduction. Neurosurgeons, neurologists, radiation oncologists, neuro-oncologists, and radiation physicists are the main audience. … This is a needed update. … It is well worth its price.” (Celso Agner, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2010)
