The Stanford Neurosurgical Training and Innovation Center
The main theme of Stanford NeuroTraIn Center is “From the Lab to the OR” as a reflection of a true translational effort to introduce novel anatomical concepts and innovative surgical technique into real surgical practice. We are teaching the next generation of neurosurgeons the art of microsurgical dissection to spread this knowledge and to influence Neurosurgery worldwide.
There is a close partnership between the Stanford NeuroTraIn Center and The Neurosurgical Atlas (ATLAS), the largest nonprofit organization for neurosurgical education and research in the world. This partnership has led to transformative innovations in surgical techniques.
With over 65,000 members and 1.3 million website users, the Atlas and Stanford NeuroTraIn affect the care of many patients daily via our unwavering commitment to technical excellence through research and education.
