Functional Neurosurgery and Neuromodulation,
Edition 1
By Kim J Burchiel, MD, FACS and Ahmed M. Raslan, MD, FAANS

Publication Date: 01 Jun 2018

Functional Neurosurgery and Neuromodulation provides comprehensive coverage of this emerging, minimally invasive area of health care. Recent advances in these areas have proven effective for pain relief, memory loss, addiction, and much more. This practical resource by Drs. Kim J. Burchiel and Ahmed M. Raslan brings you up to date with what’s new in the field and how it can benefit your patients.

Key Features

  • Offers expert guidance on functional neurosurgery and neuromodulation, lists of requirements, and the instruments needed to perform these procedures.
  • Answers practical questions such as "What do I need when performing a thermal procedure?", "What do I need to bear in mind when assembling a device?", and "What do I need to remember with regards to voltages, electrodes, percutaneous leads, RF generators, imaging, and micro instruments?"
  • Consolidates today’s available information and guidance in this timely area into one convenient resource.
