Kyoto University, founded in 1897, is the second oldest national university in Japan. Kyoto University Hospital opened in 1899, and neurosurgical activities began soon thereafter, mainly within the Department of Surgery. The Department of Neurosurgery was established in 1964 and has since steadily extended its clinical territory. The department has provided neurosurgeons and residents for 80 neurosurgical services at 12 related universities/colleges and 68 satellite hospitals. Approximately 400 operations per year are performed, and more than 30 research projects are ongoing in collaboration with other departments and scientific institutions. The main function of our department is the education and production of leading neurosurgeons who have profound knowledge in basic sciences.
