Our first words are addressed to those who are working in remote areas in difficult conditions, also with the immense pressure of COVID-19 interfering in all modalities of neurosurgical care.

 

FOUNDATION MEDICAL SET

Dr. Mohamad Natheer Khasro is working in one of the battlefronts of the Iraq war, Mosul.

He received a Zeiss microscope as a WFNS Foundation donation, contributing to the fruitful neurosurgical career of Dr. Khasro.

 

THE YOUNG PIONEERS

WFNS Foundation has established a network of “Postgraduate Training Centers”, all with world-class neurosurgical excellence. 

Apart from teaching, they provide support to young fellows from developing countries including food & accommodation. 

 

THE VOICE OF

Dr. Gerard Mayaya was trained in Nairobi WFNS Training Center, starting his residency in 2011. Now he is back in Tanzania, with a 60.000.000 population and only 30 neurosurgeons, 20 times less than the expected ratio. 

 

OPINION

Prof. Vladimir Benes is an internationally recognized leader of Neurosurgery. One of his most acclaimed contributions in education comes from his active co-chairmanship of the WFNS Neuroanatomy Committee.

 

MASTERS OF NEUROSURGERY

Dr. Keki Turel is not only a world-class neurosurgeon internationally recognized due to his vast experience in brain operations for top difficulty cases but also a wonderful person whose charm captivates everybody.
