Neurosurgical Focus: Video. Volume 3: Issue 2 (October 2020)

Topic: Surgery for Pain

Topic Editors: Jason M. Schwalb, Kim J. Burchiel, Parag G. Patil, and Tipu Z. Aziz

From the October topic editors,

“This collection represents the breadth of techniques in the neurosurgical treatment of pain, be they microsurgical, percutaneous, ablative, neurophysiologic, and/or neuromodulatory. We are hopeful that these videos, many from pioneers in the field, will be an enduring resource to surgeons wishing to add these procedures to their armamentarium or to further advance their existing techniques.”
