World’s greatest neurosurgeons gathered in Braga



The first International Workshop promoted by Fundação de Neurociências do Minho gathered in Braga the world’s greatest specialists in neurosurgery. This workshop was attended by 120 neurosurgeons, both residents and specialists, and it was a unique opportunity for them to deeply discuss several pathologies with the experts in the field. During the workshop, there was a tribute to the Neurosurgery’s Man of the Century. The Turkish neurosurgeon Mahmut Gazi Yaşargil, who is one of the most influent personalities in neurosurgery, was given homage at the University of Minho. Before this workshop, the School of Medicine at University of Minho hosted, for the 15th year, the renowned course on “Sulci, Gyri, Ventricles and Dissecting Fibers”, organized by the Fundação de Neurociências do Minho. This hands-on course is headed by the neurosurgeon Evandro de Oliveira, and it is pioneer not only in Portugal but also throughout Europe, being a reproduction of a course promoted in St. Louis, USA.
