Brain Surgery Through the Ages
October 13, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
In this talk we will learn more about the brain and discuss advances in brain surgery such as stereotactic surgery (a minimally invasive form of surgical intervention), endoscopic brain surgery, treatment of cerebrovascular diseases including strokes and aneurysms of the brain, surgery for epilepsy, brain mapping, as well as the role for awake brain surgery. Join us as we look at where we have been and what may be in store as we hypothesize the brain surgery of the future.
