Description of request

Clinical assistance and training in the form of Hands-on training (observerships, exchange programs and teaching new skill-sets to trained Neurosurgeon) in high volume centers abroad, provision of intraoperative teaching tools, operating room equipment and surgical instruments and assistance with creating full research partnerships as well as establishing local research projects

There is need for the modern equipment types for the management of these specific conditions.

  1. Neuronavigation
