Abstract

In this study the authors examine the historical tradition as well as current features of neurosurgery in Greece and compare the available data with international standards. In particular, they describe the organizational structure of neurosurgery with reference to manpower, unit distribution, training, and qualification. They discuss problems such as overproduction of neurosurgeons and the poor control of training and qualification procedures in the neurosurgical profession. The findings are examined in a critical way and solutions are proposed that could improve the present situation.
