As neurosurgeon, each of us walks into the operating room (OR), mind focused on the task and patient at hand. Though surgeons are typically referred to as “in charge” of the room, we depend on every single member of the OR team for a successful surgical outcome. I have often wondered what our team members imagine goes through our minds as we operate. Motivated by this focus on the “mind of a neurosurgeon,” I decided to ask.
I did find myself feeling really anxious about meeting my surgeon. I wasn't really scared of what he was going to do but more so what he might not do. I have read and heard lots of stories about neurosurgeons...
Over four decades, a neurosurgeon has learned that complacency is the worst of all surgical sins.
There is no hard evidence suggesting a beginning to the practice of other fields of medicine such as pharmacology — using drugs, chemical and natural ingredients to help a fellow human being.
There is ample evidence, however, of brain surgery, dating back to the Neolithic (late Stone Age) period.
...neurosurgeons at major medical centers and academic institutions across the U.S. and around the world are utilizing Surgical Theater’s transformative enterprise-wide virtual reality medical visualization platform and Precision VR™ long before a patient is prepped for surgery. This first-of-its-kind immersive environment allows for unparalleled patient education and engagement, while also delivering next-generation surgical planning and navigation capabilities.
We feel pleased to introduce you our project based on the development of a huge 3DNeuroanatomy community. Our aim is to encourage every single neurosurgeon or neurosurgical resident to join us in order to create a group of people interested on the study and discussion of different neurosurgical cases, always assisted by the most important weapon we have, the NEUROANATOMY.
The official socioeconomic publication of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), AANS Neurosurgeon, features information and analysis for contemporary neurosurgical practice.
Learning neurosurgery for medical students, PAs, NPs, and neuroscience nurses.
The mission of Neurosurgery Blog is to investigate and report on how healthcare policy affects patients, physicians and medical practice and to illustrate that the art and science of neurosurgery encompasses much more than brain surgery.
Welcome to Neurosurgery://On-Call featuring neurosurgical information for patients and the health care professional. Neurosurgery://On-Call is presented by the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and the Congress of Neurological Surgeons.
At least three major trends in neurosurgical techniques have emerged:
A move toward more minimally invasive (or non-invasive) approach to the surgical target.
The development of high-precision treatment delivery techniques. Increasing role of multimodality intraoperative imaging.
The Neurosurgical Atlas is the most comprehensive regularly updated atlas on the web, keeping neurosurgeons abreast of cutting edge technical nuances. We aim to teach techniques to improve patients' safety and surgical outcome.
Dear viewer, you are looking at the definitive guide to the brain and mind for everyone. I hope it is useful and interesting to you.
The purpose of this website is to provide clear, understandable, non-technical information about the medical conditions that usually require brain surgery, as well as information about the techniques and skills needed for successful surgery on the brain.
The GCS is scored between 3 and 15, 3 being the worst, and 15 the best. It is composed of three parameters : Best Eye Response, Best Verbal Response, Best Motor Response. Note that the phrase 'GCS of 11' is essentially meaningless, and it is important to break the figure down into its components, such as E3V3M5 = GCS 11. A Coma Score of 13 or higher correlates with a mild brain injury, 9 to 12 is a moderate injury and 8 or less a severe brain injury.
The #1 app for neurosurgery in the world!
NeuroMind offers interactive clinical decision support and clinical classification and grading systems. The app is officially supported by Surgical Neurology International and the European Association of Neurosurgical Societies (EANS).
To provide neurosurgeons with the most timely comprehensive and relevant clinical information to improve patient care.
Neurosurgic.com is a professional networking site for neurosurgeons of all levels, neurosurgical trainees, and medical students interested in neurosurgery. Members of other medical professions - such as neurologists, neuroradiologists, neurointerventionists, neuroanesthesiologists, neurophysiologists and others with an interest in neurosurgery, are also invited to join.
