Improving neurosurgical practice throughout Asia

Iype Cherian
Counselor General

It is a time of changes which has been sweeping through the world and what has been considered Avant- garde before is now being the accepted norms everywhere…from fashion to relationships and of course in Neurosugery… It is important that we accept and imbibe these changes, for otherwise we will be extinct..

The standards in Neurosurgery is changing and the main reason for this has been the training opportunities for a young Neurosurgeon.. Gone are the days when only the old masters know how to do things.. They have helped the young to be on their feet earlier and then have a chance to push frontiers.. Ego must take a back seat for the sake of Neurosurgery..

So, we ask all of you in Asia and abroad to forget the lines that divide countries, forget races, forget differences and be one in helping each other and respecting each other. Let’s help the young Neurosurgons to train properly and give a fighting chance to patients worldwide…
