The Department of Neurosurgery was founded in the Grant Medical College, Mumbai, in the year 1958, and is celebrating its 60th anniversary. The history of Neurosurgery in this Institute is synonymous with the history of Neurosurgery in the state as this was one of the first government medical colleges to start a Neurosurgery Department within the state. The students after undergoing their rigorous training in the department, went on to establish advanced neurosurgical centers throughout Maharasthra and in several other parts of the country. The patients opt for this institution to get a standard of care that may be comparable with the highest standards prevalent, and the students achieve their goal of getting excellent education in Neurosurgery at par with the best institutes of the world. The department has, therefore, over the years, established its place in the country as a premier training facility and an epitome of medical excellence. This article traces the illustrious history of the Department of Neurosurgery, Grant Medical College and Sir J.J. Group of Hospitals, Mumbai, and also of the eminent faculty members and residents, who helped in advancing the standards of Neurosurgery in the region as well as the rest of India.
