The brain is an integral and marvelous part of a human's personality and being. Neurosurgeons are more than just brain surgeons. They are well trained to help patients with head and spine trauma, cerebrovascular disorders,
Discussion: Chordomas of the skull base represent significant challenges due to their midline position and their ability to engulf critical neurovascular structures located around them. In addition to these location issues, their biology represents significant challenges, as notocordal rests located throughout the clivus, often remote from the visible lesion, have the propensity to grow and recur. Both of these features are critical for the skull base surgeon, the former in determining the surgical
a personal interview. Successful Neuro Surgery is actually really young, being developed during this past century. Pioneer surgeon 's abilities were very limited due to their lack of technology and knowledge of the human nervous system. Today, Neurosurgery represents one of the most successful and prestigious specialties, which continues to lead the way in research, education, and advances in surgical technologies, which serve all areas of medicine.

still remember the day when I found out that, due to my gender, it would be much more difficult for me to succeed in the male-dominated field that is neurosurgery. Only a small fraction of neurosurgeons are females, which is pretty discouraging. Because of their gender, many women face discrimination and barriers not only in the field of neurosurgery, but also in quite a few other careers fields. Even though gender barriers pose a huge problem to all women in America, I plan to improve the situation

Neurosurgeons have to spend many hours a day in the taxing environment of a hospital. Neurosurgery is also a very well paying job. Neurosurgery has an average pay of over $300,000 per year, but many other professions have an average pay of $58,000, which is almost 6 times less than a neurosurgeon’s pay.

Some patients will live and many will die.
and clipping of aneurysms all while a patient is numbed and unconscious when previously treatment was a painful shot in the dark. Neurosurgery has evolved not only through extensive research of anatomy and a change in religious perspective, but came hand in hand with the development of anesthetics and the world’s major advancements in radiology and imaging. Neurosurgery is set apart from every other field because it pertains to the most important part of the body: the brain. If a person’s entire body
Intra-Operative Image Guidance in Sinus and Skull Base Surgery Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) using rigid endoscopes has developed into becoming the mainstay treatment for opening obstructed outflow tracts of the paranasal sinuses. However, limitations surrounding FESS have resulted in intra-operative Image-Guidance Systems (IGS) to improve outcomes in complex skull base procedures. A principal limitation of the endoscopic endonasal approach is the availability of only a two-dimensional
