The certification by the American Board of Neurological Surgery is taken as the gold standard for neurosurgeons. The final hurdle in accomplishing the certification process is the challenging oral examination. In 2017, the format of the ABNS oral exam was revised to make it more relevant, painstaking, and reflective of recent advances in neurosurgery. Thus, in Neurosurgery Oral Board Review, 3rd Edition, (PDF) the authors have expanded on the widely acclaimed previous editions.

The user-friendly ebook is packed with all the essentials that are required to prepare for the exam. It can be used either for a rapid review a few days ahead of the exam or as an overview to organize study preparation. Every chapter starts with a collection of salient facts, followed by cases that simulate the actual oral board experience.

Key Highlights

  • Complications and emergency procedures discussed in greater detail
  • Eighty entirely new, first-rate cases supplemented by a large number of images
  • More than 300 outstanding anatomic drawings and radiographs to enhance the ability to visualize complex concepts
  • In-depth focus on the current state-of-the-art in neurosurgery, including endovascular and functional approaches, minimally-invasive brain and spine procedures, arthrodesis, etc.

This quintessential pocket-sized oral board review has gained its place as a trusted study companion in the past 15 years. The new and improved edition will continue to play an important role for neurosurgeons prepping for this challenging final stage of ABNS certification.
