Founder President

The NSSA Website is being updated in keeping with the rapid progress in Neuro-Spinal surgery. In–fact, this branch has progressed so rapidly that today it is recognized as one of the most popular surgical branch.

It is all the more important that the younger neuro-spinal surgeons must strive hard to obtain thoroughly basic facts about the functioning of the spine. The applied anatomy as related to surgical interventions on the spine, along with understanding of the biomechanics will help the surgeons in the application of newer implants. There is no doubt that the safety of the patient is very much influenced by the expertise and application of the surgeon.

Message from Dr. Satish Rudrappa

President

Spine surgery has taken a long leap in the last decade and constitutes more than 25% work of any neurosurgeon. Technological advances in last couple of decades added impetus to spine surgery with excellent results decreasing the morbidity in the patients. In recent years the progress is happening more towards minimizing the tissue damage during surgery helping the patients to recover faster and resume their activity at the earliest. Neurosurgeons have contributed significantly in this minimally invasive spine surgery by quick adaptation to microsurgical principles and more recently towards the use of endoscopic surgeries.
