The overproduction of neurosurgeons jeopardizes future neurosurgical care.


In some areas of the world the next generation of neuro-surgeons is facing a serious problem.

The following statistical data relate to local phenomena but reflect dilemmas to be considered by the international neurosurgical community since they exist in many countries.
