Suggestions for searching Medline....

In PubMed Medline and Ovid Medline, the term "Neurosurgery" refers to the specialty of Neurological Surgery, not surgical procedures. To search for procedures use "Neurosurgical Procedures"

  • Use the MESH terminology to search PubMed or Ovid Medline (see the attached PDF of neurosurgical terminology)
  • Start with the most specific term and if that does not work, then try a broader term.
  • You can search for ANY neurosurgical procedure by adding the subheading /surgery to an anatomical site/organ e.g. Peripheral Nerves/surgery.
