The “must have” reference guide for neurosurgery!
Created by neurosurgeons, for neurosurgeons.

The Neurosurgery Survival Guide is a quick reference, high-yield guide that encompasses the massive breadth of knowledge and information necessary to care for neurosurgical patients. This is the ideal reference for all neurosurgical residents, interns, and medical students. It is highly relevant for all mid-level practitioners who will encounter and care for neurosurgical patients such as nurse practitioners, physician assistants, neurosurgery nurses, and those working in neuro-intensive care units.

There are hundreds of unique topics covered in this guide. All content is kept up-to-date with the latest in practice recommendations, and will update automatically each time the application is opened. New content is always provided free of charge.

The NSG includes the complete neurologic exam, including rapid reference to many protocols, a “what-to-do” guide when encountering many of the common neurosurgical conditions, all aspects of neurocritical care, common neurosurgical procedures, a pediatric section, and trauma.

A learning section includes high-yield neuroanatomy, cavernous sinus anatomy, spinal cord, functional neurosurgery, and neuroimaging. The guide also includes dozens of updated graphics and professional illustrations.

The Neurosurgery Survival Guide includes everything you need to know when caring for neurosurgical patients. This is the definitive rapid reference guide—a “must have” on your neurosurgery rotation!

Good but doesn’t replace Greenberg

Last eater said it replaces Greenberg. Well it’s far from it but a good start. It needs to be updated, has some minor spelling errors, and is not detailed to the extent that Greenberg is, but it is still useful.

A mobile Greenburg only better

Remember when you were on-call and you got a consult from the ED on a patient and you weren't sure what to do and you quickly looked up for the case in Greenburg before you called your attending... Now you won't need Greenburg anymore. Dr. Roundy's neurosurgery survival guide will be the only reference you will need for being on call! It also has other useful information such as important surgical approaches, neuroradiology, neuropathology, etc! It certainly helps me become a better resident!

Not worth it-

Would be disappointing as a free app. Not worth $ 6.99 with many more up to date and easy to use well conceived resources available Doubt I'll use this and honestly regret wasting money on it.
