ARTICLE: NEUROSCIENCES AND INSIGHTS INTO SOME TRUTHS (12th April 2020)
It was during my internship that I decided to take up Neurosurgery instead of Neurology, as I had wished as a schoolboy.

Present day neurosurgery has been static with little advancement in routine surgical practice. The advancements in Neurosurgery over the past five decades have emerged from rigorous research; evaluating the risks and benefits of neurosurgical management. This has resulted in increased reliance of sophisticated gadgets in the operating room and a shift of focus in neurosurgical training to a more evidence based assessment rather than polishing surgical skills. The dilemma of “do-no-harm” has led to surgeons resorting to easy strategies, which might sometimes not be the best. This has put us in a very dangerous situation; where a young neurosurgeon is proficient in assessing risks with the help of statistics but does not know how to operate.
Neurosurgery Coach is an idea to break this stagnance and revive neurosurgical training to achieving surgical skills and strategies with minimal resources. This will help address the need of the hour to train young neurosurgeons be ready to undertake patient loads in low-to-middle income countries which lack resources to equip their neurosurgical facilities.
With this initiative, the Neurosurgery Coach program will not only impart neurosurgical training but also provide a platform to new ideas and innovations to bring back the lost dynamics of neurosurgical practice.
