Becoming Dr Q Excerpt :

Today he is known as Dr. Q, an internationally renowned neurosurgeon and neuroscientist who leads cutting-edge research to cure brain cancer. But not too long ago, he was Freddy, a nineteen-year-old undocumented migrant worker toiling in the tomato fields of central California. In this gripping memoir, Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa tells his amazing life story—from his impoverished childhood in the tiny village of Palaco, Mexico, to his harrowing border crossing and his transformation from illegal immigrant to American citizen and gifted student at the University of California at Berkeley and at Harvard Medical School. Packed with adventure and adversity—including a few terrifying brushes with death—Becoming Dr. Q is a testament to persistence, hard work, the power of hope and imagination, and the pursuit of excellence. It’s also a story about the importance of family, of mentors, and of giving people a chance.

The Craniotomy Atlas Excerpt :

"… the neurosurgical primer that every resident will own and study" - Robert Spetzler Given that the great majority of brain surgeries are preceded by a craniotomy, mastering the procedure is essential for junior residents. Choosing the appropriate craniotomy and executing it safely is the difference between a straightforward case with good access to the target and a procedure where access to the target is needlessly traumatic and may even be impossible. Professor Raabe's The Craniotomy Atlas provides precise instructions for performing all common neurosurgical cranial exposures, including: convexity approaches, midline approaches, skull base approaches, transsphenoidal approaches and more. Instructions for each craniotomy include positioning, head fixation, aesthetic considerations, and protecting the dura mater. Special Features: More than 600 high-quality operative photographs and brilliant illustrations support the step-by-step descriptions, with all the precision and attention to detail that neurosurgeons have come to expect from the editor Professor Raabe, and the associate editors Professors Meyer, Schaller, Vajkoczy, and Winkler. Full coverage of complications and risk factors Checklist with summaries of the critical steps All residents and trainees in neurosurgery will treasure this essential resource, which will help build confidence when performing these critical neurosurgical procedures.
