2020 Department of Neurosurgery Report

In 1920 Edward B. Towne, a disciple of Harvey Cushing, brought modern neurosurgery to Stanford. Over the last 100 years, the field of neurosurgery has witnessed significant advancements in our understanding and treatment of neurological disease and injury. As we reflect back on our history, we are proud of how we've continued to build on the legacy of those who came before us by fostering a culture of excellence, innovation, and inclusion. Our latest publication, Visionary Neurosurgery: A Century of Innovation, provides a comprehensive look at the accomplishments of the Stanford Department of Neurosurgery over the past century, and a preview of the success yet to come.
