One and a half years after the beginning of the COVID pandemic, the world is still moving ahead and we all are dreaming of the restart of what used to be “routine”, but in the meantime have a look at what people linked to Foundation are doing…
Dr. Andrew Nyaoncha was fully trained at the Nairobi WFNS Training Center with a scholarship supported by Foundation.
He is a very hardworking and dedicated young neurosurgeon. Doing a good job at the new site he started in Nyeri (KENYA) helping many patients in that region.
Almost ten years ago, WFNS did promote the creation of a training center giving support to Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Zambia, Malawi, and Rwanda.
This center is based in Nairobi, under the direction of Dr. Mahmood Qureshi.
A kind, compassionate, enthusiastic, and skillful neurosurgeon. Dedicated to the training of Neurosurgery in Malaysia, he is actively cooperating with the WFNS Foundation educational goals.
Academic neurosurgeon, scientist, scholar. Dr. Kaanan has been leading one of the iconic centers of Arabic Neurosurgery.
Highly committed to WFNS education through the very successful (I. Kaanan & V. Benes) Neuroanatomy Committee.
Dr. Isabella Opoku is a Ghanaian Resident Neurosurgeon at the International Neuroscience Institute in Beijing.
The Neurosurgical Drill Set by the Chinese company XISHAN has been recently incorporated into WFNS Foundation donations.
Director for several decades of one of the most emblematic neurosurgical institutions all over
the world, Dr. Konovalov is a living legend.
His tireless activity made Burdenko Institute (Moscow) one the centers with the largest
experience in any kind of neurosurgical procedure. Our interview is stained by the terrible and
recent loss of Dr. Alexander Potatov. They both organized dozens of fruitful teaching activities
in cooperation with WFNS Foundation.
