Neurosurgical Equipment Presented by the World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies' Foundation
With this Basic Set of Neurosurgical Instruments, WFNS, together with Aesculap, has initiated a worldwide project. It provides an attractive platform for sponsoring adequate neurosurgical instruments in countries that are in great need of such equipment.
This set of instruments can be used for the most common neurosurgical procedures. We hope to find numerous sponsors who will purchase this Basic Set of Neurosurgical Instruments and thereby support physicians in economically challenged countries who are devoted to neurosurgery and neurosurgical patients.
Along with the Basic Set of Neurosurgical Instruments, the WFNS Foundation also provides basic neurosurgical training for general surgeons who must render such services in developing countries. I think we should also start training general surgeons in basic neurosurgery; they already attempt procedures especially simple burrholes and just require some hands on experience to be better; second, teaching the young surgeons may stimulate some to take up neurosurgical training.
