Title : Advances in Neurosurgery- Glimpses of the Role of Technology in the Operating Room
Abstract :
There has been rapid advancements in the use of technology in the operating room by neurosurgeons all over the world. The nature of the biology of the central nervous system in humans is such that being permanent cells, the neurons do not regenerate. Neurosurgeons have been aware of the critical nature and biology of the tissues they deal with and have therefore been at the forefront in adapting new technology to benefit their patients. The technological revolution in neurosurgery has been fueled as much by the developments in computer technology and connectivity as by the advancements in material science and precision engineering. The seminar deals with the use of certain available equipment to demonstrate how clinicians and surgeons have adapted technology to positively impact and improve the lives of their patients.

Bio-sketch : Dr. Dibyendu K Ray M.S., M.Ch. (Neurosurgery) is a Senior Neurosurgeon Consultant at AMRI Hospital. Prior to starting his neurosurgical practice, he was working as an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at the Bangur Institute of Neurosciences, Kolkata, the apex institute for neurosurgical training in the state. After receiving his basic medical training from R G Kar Medical College Kolkata, Dr. Ray completed his post graduation in surgery from University of Rajasthan and then went on to achieve his postdoctoral degree in neurosurgery from the PGIMER, Chandigarh. Thereafter he trained in the USA at the University of Virginia, the Oregon Health Science University, and the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria. Subsequently he qualified for the Diploma of the European Society of the Minimally Invasive Neurologic Therapy and the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. Despite his busy clinical schedule, he has published several articles in peer reviewed journals and has several book chapters to his credit.
