DNB Neurosurgery 6 year Course Review
- In a technological intensive specialty such as Neurosurgery, private hospitals can provide good exposure to it. The operation theatres are technologically fully equipped with Neuronavigation, High-end microscopes, C-Arm, O-arm, MRI Brain Operative Suite, Intraoperative USG,Neuromonitoring. All these are seldom available in majority of the government hospitals.
- Oportunity to learn the principles from leading successful neurosurgeons who are in private practice
Cons: In the majority of the places where DNB is offered are Private institutes, so hands-on is restricted. Hands on usually includes a few steps in any procedure, otherwise mostly you are assisting.
