This collage is the face of Women in Neurosurgery India (WINSI). WINSI is an informal group conceived by few enthusiasts (Dr Vidhya Narasimhan, Dr Gaurie Joshi, Dr Priyamvadha K and Dr Vishakha Karpe) at one of the workshops at Jabalpur in the year 2015 and has currently 109 women neurosurgeons who have completed or are undergoing training in the field of Neurosurgery in India. The number has crossed the century mark 2 years ago and has been growing constantly, yet it constitutes only 2.5% of neurosurgeons in the country versus double digit numbers in European countries like 36% in Italy. Some of us are positioned at senior Administrative posts, some are passionate Entrepreneurs. Some are future-oriented Mentors and some are distinguished Academicians. Centred around Prof TS Kanaka, the group idolizes the principle of hard work and dedication. It is our deep seated desire which has brought us where we are today and we firmly believe there is no “ gender “ of a surgeon. The glass ceiling phenomena, the networking limitations, the covert discriminations shall fail to prevent the growth of Women in Neurosurgery, India.

I acknowledge that this image do not include under training residents in Neurosurgery and also may have missed few of the degree holders Women in Neurosurgery in India.
