Nurse practitioner Maria Farrow is a busy woman and her talents span a wide range. She is an exceptional clinician, who’s work in the Department of Neurosurgery at Columbia helps critically ill people from all walks of life. She is an accomplished runner. She is an industry recognized medical television consultant. And now, she is a published author!
Farrow has written a chapter in the text “Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology: Theory and Clinical Practice,” published on Nov. 24, 2014. This book serves as a complete reference in the growing field of endovascular surgery (learn more about that here), and it is already the largest grossing book for Thieme Publishers.
Farrow is the only nurse practitioner among the book’s swath of physician authors. Dr. Charles J. Prestigiacomo, a former Columbia neurosurgery resident and colleague of Farrow, edited the text.
“He offered me the unique opportunity to write a chapter on nursing considerations in the care of the endovascular surgical patient,” she says. “I am excited to have my first chapter published in such an important medical textbook. Although the writing was exhausting, I am proud to provide information on nursing’s contribution, which is always essential to the highly technical field of neuroendovascular surgery.”
