In training to become a neurosurgeon, many of the crucial manual skills that must be acquired can only be mastered through growing experience during the rigorous and lengthy training process. Yet, many - often essential - practical skills can quickly be learned, practiced, and even mastered, away from the OR.

Getting Ready for Brain Surgery provides the readers with a basic set of exercises that will allow him to develop and improve their motor skills, handling of various tissues, and general technical competence.

Topics include:


  • Planning: visualization of the procedure

  • The craniotomy - using a coconut

  • Working with the microscope

  • Removing a gyrus: subapial resection

  • Removing a brain tumor using an artificial model

  • Microsurgical training: the chicken wing model


  • Junior neurosurgical residents and interns will benefit greatly from this handy guide.
