Neurosurgical Procedures

This is a collection of curated and illustrated 5-minute videos demonstrating common neurosurgical procedures performed by the Division of Neurosurgery. The aim is to stimulate interest, share the knowledge, and provide an opportunity for undergraduate medical students to have a taste of Neurosurgery in Action. We will include general and basic procedures in the beginning, and expand to more advanced operations later in the collection. Enjoy!
