INSTITUTE OF NEUROSURGERY AND NEUROPATHOLOGY, SANTIAGO, CHILE  On Nov. 10, 1949 the Institute of Neurosurgery and Neuropathology of Santiago, Chile, completed ten years of work. This Institute has gained a special place in America, and for this reason many young physicians from South and Central America, as well as from Mexico, have come to specialize in these subjects.The most important event in this celebration is the opening of two new departments: Neurological Surgery for Children and Rehabilitation for Paraplegics. The Institute is directed by the well known neurosurgeon Prof. Dr. Alfonso Asenjo.
