About The Book

The introduction of the endoscope for neurosurgical procedures began with great promise. It was developed to provide a magnified anatomical view of the ventricular system in a minimally invasive manner. The early endoscopes were too primitive for the majority of procedures performed today. The advent of illumination, optical systems, and modern endoscopes allow the neurosurgeon to perform these previously inoperable cases. This book introduces all aspects of the modern endoscope system, physics of optics, and all the techniques of intracranial neuroendoscopy. This is a must-have book for all levels of surgeons, residents, operating room staff, and anyone who wants to learn about endoscopy and its potential applications.

George I Jallo, MD received his medical degree from the University of Virginia, 1991. He then completed his residency at New York University Medical Center-Bellevue Hospital in New York City in 1998. He completed advanced fellowship training in Pediatric Neurosurgery under the tutelage of Dr. Fred Epstein at Beth Israel Medical Center. He then continued as a staff neurosurgeon until he accepted his current position. He is an Associate Professor of Neurosurgery, Pediatrics and Oncology at Johns Hopkins University where he is also the Clinical Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery.

  • He specializes in minimally invasive surgical techniques such as endoscopy, and key-hole surgery.
  • He is also a world authority on intramedullary spinal cord tumors and intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring.
  • He has received numerous awards both institutionally and nationally for his recognized work in the field of pediatric neurosurgery.
  • His research interests are brainstem and spinal cord tumors in animal models. He has developed the only animal models for these diseases in attempts of finding a cure for these tumors.
  • He is an active participant and member of the American and International Societies of Pediatric Neurosurgeons.

James E. Conway, MD, PhD received his medical degree from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 2001. He then completed his residency in neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in 2008. During his training he has concentrated his studies on neuro-oncology and has been an NIH funded neuro-oncology fellow.

  • He is director of skull base neurosurgery and cerebrovascular neurosurgery at the Brain and Spine Institute at Sinai Hospital, Baltimore, Maryland.
  • He specializes in neuro-oncology and skull base surgery. He is particularly interested in the applications of minimally invasive surgical techniques such as endoscopy to these fields.
  • His research interests include anatomic studies of skull base approaches and their clinical applications.

Prof. László Bognár, MD received his medical degree from the Semmelweis University of Budapest, 1982. He completed his residency in Neurology and then in Neurosurgery at National Institute of Neurosurgery in Budapest 1989. During this period he worked one year at Hopital Foch in Paris as a fellow under the tutelage of Prof. P. Derome. He then continued as a staff neurosurgeon in the National Institute of Neurosurgery until 1990, when he left Hungary for 4 years to work with Prof. Lapras in Lyon. During this period obtained full training in Pediatric Neurosurgery and prepared his PhD Thesis. From 1994 he was Consultant and from1997 the Head of Pediatric Neurosurgical Department in the National Institute of Neurosurgery of Hungary. He become Lecturer of Semmelweis University in 2004 and he holds an MSc Diploma in Health Management. Since 2005 he is Chairman and the Director of Neurosurgery Clinic and the Gamma Unit of Debrecen University (DEOEC) . Apart from this position he is an advisor and consultant neurosurgeon at the National Institute of Neurosurgery of Hungary.

  • His main professional activity in the last 14 years is paediatric neurosurgery(3000 surgical procedures) and neuro-oncology (800 tumor operations).He is an experienced surgeon in minimally invasive techniques such as endoscopies(400 cases), neuronavigation and key hole surgery.
  • He has 49 national and international publications.
  • He is an active participant and member of different national and international Societies. He organized the European Course of Paediatric Neurosurgery in 2006.
