2 books by Loyola neurologist 'Highly Commended' by British Medical Association
Date:9/18/2012

MAYWOOD, Il. - Two textbooks co-authored by Loyola University Medical Center neurologist Dr. Jos Biller have been named "Highly Commended" in the 2012 British Medical Association Medical Book Awards.

The books are:

  • Evidencebased Management of Stroke. By Jos Biller and Jos M. Ferro; tfm publishing LTD, June 2011.
  • Localization in Clinical Neurology, 6th edition. By Paul W. Brazis, Joseph C. Masdeu and Jos Biller; Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, March 2011.

Evidence-based Management of Stroke reviews the evidence for both medical and surgical therapies as well as preventive strategies. Sections examine the impact of various risk factors and special populations. There are sections on stroke after cardiovascular surgeries and special risks during pregnancy and childhood stroke.

Localization in Clinical Neurology provides a systematic approach to the anatomic localization of clinical problems in neurology. It offers clinicians a roadmap for moving from the symptom or observed sign to the place in the central or peripheral nervous system where the problem is. More than 100 illustrations demonstrate relevant anatomy.

Biller is chairman of the Department of Neurology of Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine.
