About the Book: This didactic book clearly and systematically describes the anatomical-surgical fundamentals of cranial neurosurgery, relating them to norm variants, imaging modalities and interdisciplinary aspects. All illustrations, hand drawn in ink by the first author, are simple and self-explanatory. The book reflects the first author’s lifetime experience as an academic neurosurgeon and teacher, as well as the second author’s theoretical and practical knowledge of neurosurgical subspecialties such as epilepsy surgery. In addition to its core audience in neurosurgery, it provides all connected disciplines, in particular neuroradiology, neurology, neuropathology, ENT surgery, maxillofacial surgery and eye surgery, with unique anatomical insights into the neurosurgeon’s perspective.

He published 22 books on microsurgery and continued to hold training seminars and lectures on microsurgical anatomy after his retirement. Josef Zentner has been Professor and Chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery at the Albert Ludwig University of Freiburg since 1997. His main fields of interest are epilepsy research, neuro-oncology and brain-computer interfaces.
