9781633931824: Yasargil: : Father of Modern Neurosurgery

M. Gazi Yasargil: Father of Modern Neurosurgery is an account of a famous man's unusual and inspiring life, particularly as a youth and young man, which is described in the first 138 pages of  the book. Later, as  a neurosurgeon he found a means of reducing the mortality rates associated with the deadliest of brain pathologies from thirty percent in the mid-1960s to less than two percent. It required not only a vastly redesigned microscope, but an array of new surgical instruments, even a new way of thinking. 1967 witnessed neurosurgeons flocking to Zurich from around the world to learn his method. Yasargil possessed a truly amazing surgical talent, but his brand of microneurosurgery allowed even the lesser skilled to achieve stunning results if the requisite laboratory-hours to master the method were observed. Yasargil's life and times were as dramatic and challenging as microneurosurgery was important. He was born in a cave in rural east Turkey as his parents were held at gunpoint by outlaws determined to challenge the new government in Ankara. At eighteen, with his family's hearts in their throats, he was off to Vienna to study medicine. But when Nazi police suspected him of being a Jew, he was not allowed to register for classes. But instead of returning to Turkey defeated, he chose to push into Germany where he bargained enrollment as a first year medical student. From 1943 to 1945 he was harassed by Hitler's police as a potential spy. Headstrong, confident-he typically made matters worse. The bombs killing some of his classmates were dropped from British and American aircraft. Since this story contains as much history and adventure as medical triumph, a brief glossary of medical terms make it accessible to anyone reading at the high school level.

From the Back Cover :

"A trainee of Gazi Yasargil's in 1973, Larry Rogers, a former neurosurgeon himself and author of a well-received novel and a memoir of his experiences as an Army doctor in the Vietnam conflict, has produced a book from a series of interviews in the 1990s on the life and times of his teacher.  Professor Yasargil is one of the most renowned neurosurgeons of our time. Rogers has captured the essence of this ambitious, driven, and at times, difficult man, who perhaps more than anyone else drove the development of microsurgical neuroanatomy and microneurosurgery as we know it today.  The book is very well written and easy to read.  It will be of interest, not only as a work of neurosurgical history, but to anyone drawn to the life story of a memorable human being."
 Robert L. Grubb, Jr., MD
Professor Emeritus of Neurological Surgery and Radiology
Washington University in St. Louis
Herodotus wrote his "Histories,", the story of the Greco-Persian wars, "in the hope of thereby preserving from decay the remembrance of what men have done, and preventing the great and wonderful actions ..... from losing their deemed of glory. "   Dr. Rogers has likewise chronicled the great deeds of Professor M. Gazi Yasargil.  Professor Yasargil is much more than a virtuoso neurosurgeon.  His writings describe original observation and his unique philosophy that serve as a basis for his practice of neurosurgery.   He was a generous teacher who profoundly influenced the careers of a lucky few who directly worked with him, and changed the neurosurgical practice of all who read his works.  Dr. Rogers has captured the Professor not only as a terrific neurosurgeon but as a very special human being.

"This legendary surgeon's massive efforts to transform his specialty are almost matched by the author's attempt to present a balanced view of his life.  Every anecdote, observation, and detail exudes interest and humanity. The scope of the narrative goes well beyond its focus--neurosurgery--making it not only important for the youth of neurosurgery, even all of medicine, but this book also seems accessible to general readers. It succeeds in grand style."
 William F. Pharr, MDFormer Director, Cardiovascular, Thoracic, and Vascular Surgery
Geisinger Medical Center (Danville, PA)"Generations of neurosurgeons have been, and will continue to be, influenced by the teachings of Professor Yasargil. The passage of time will continue to immortalize his teachings and technical elegance. He will live in eternity through the practitioners of microsurgery and generations of patients who benefit from it."
 Ketan. R. Bulsara MD
Director, Neuroendovascular and Skull Base Surgery
Yale University Department of Neurosurgery  
"The operating microscope introduced by Professor Yasargil, has dramatically improved the outcomes with central nervous system surgery.  This book is a vivid and dynamic, account of this unusual man's life and times. He has clearly transformed our specialty."
 Charles Sternbergh, MD
Chattanooga, Tennessee
 
"Larry Rogers has given the world the first biographical insight into the man who delivered neurosurgery into the modern era. Professor Yasargil altered the approach to complex neurosurgical procedures by virtue of his creative mind and unsurpassed technical skills. More importantly, he was relentless in his crusading for their widespread adoption across the globe. Rogers' biography illuminates the complexity of the man and surgeon."

About the Author :

Dr. Larry Rogers learned the rudiments of microneurosurgery under the tutelage of his subject, Professor Gazi Yasargil, while visiting Switzerland for five weeks as a forth-year resident from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. His undergraduate degree was from Davidson College and he graduated from the Duke Medical School. Ultimately he practiced, microneurosurgery in Charlotte, North Carolina for almost three decades. He has authored or co-authored four additional books, three of which are about microneurosurgery, including a novel set in the 1980s.
