The Section of Neurosurgery, part of the Department of Surgery, and the Mind and Brain Service Line at the Aga Khan University Hospital Karachi, has come a long way since its recognition in mid-90s. Although the program itself was recognized in late 90’s and the first resident graduated in 2004, it wasn't until 2008 that it assumed its current shape of a formal, structured training program. Currently it has six full-time faculty members, one part-time faculty member, two instructors, and a team of 12 residents. Following are few of the innovations introduced within the program over the last few years.
