The Department of Neurosurgery at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi started the “Experimental Microneurosurgery Laboratory” in 1971 through the efforts of Prof. P.N. Tandon and Prof. A.K. Banerji (Emeritus Professors, Department of Neurosurgery).
The training laboratory was expanded and renovated into a full fledged training facility named as Neurosurgery Skills Training Facility and Experimental Laboratory with the support of Department of Science and Technology (DST), Ministry of Science and Technology, Govt. of India, Department of Biotechnology (DBT) Indo-German Collaboration, Ministry of Science and Technology, Govt. of India, and Department of Health Research (DHR-ICMR), Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Govt. of India for hands on skills training of M.Ch and DNB neurosurgery residents and trained /trainee Neurosurgeons from India and abroad.
The Neurosurgery Skills Training Facility and Experimental Laboratory is equipped with the state-of-the-art equipment, which simulates a modern Neurosurgery Operation Room environment. The training imparted is aimed at development of Neurosurgical skills and techniques.
The training imparted in the form of quarterly workshops, short term training programs and daily skills training sessions is focused on formulation of a new curriculum of neurosurgical skills development and imparting hands-on practice on synthetic/semi synthetic models, live anesthetized animals and cadaver parts using highly advanced equipment and technology creating a neurosurgical operation room environment.
