About the Author

ALBERT L. RHOTON, JR., MD (1932-2016), was a pioneer in the field of microsurgical neuroanatomy. Along with more than four decades of practice and research at the Mayo Clinic and the University of Florida, he served as President of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, the Society of Neurological Surgeons, the North American Skull Base Society, the International Interdisciplinary Congress on Craniofacial and Skull Base Surgery, the Florida Neurosurgical Society, and the International Society for Neurosurgical Technology and Instrument Invention. Dr. Rhoton was a graduate of the Washington University School of Medicine, graduating with the highest academic standing in the class of 1959. He completed his neurosurgical training at Washington University and joined the staff of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota in 1965. He became Professor and Chair of the Department of Neurological Surgery at the University of Florida in 1972. Cranial Anatomy and Surgical Approaches, considered his magnum opus, was first published in 2003. THE CONGRESS OF NEUROLOGICAL SURGEONS (CNS) is the global leader in neurosurgical education, serving to promote health by advancing neurosurgery through innovation and excellence in education. The CNS provides leadership in neurosurgery by inspiring and facilitating scientific discovery and its translation into clinical practice. The CNS maintains the vitality of the profession through volunteer efforts of its members and the development of leadership in service to the public, to colleagues in other disciplines, and to neurosurgeons throughout the world in all stages of their professional lives.
