NSx at Loyola

Started neurosurgery at Loyola this week and it's off to a great start. I've always wanted to see neurosurgery and it's amazing to see what these physicians get to do on a regular basis. So far, I've seen skull biopsies for possible mets from prostate CA, ommaya-reservoir placed for CNS prophylaxis of ALL and clipping of SCA aneurysm. Today, spent the whole day on removal of an acoustic schwannoma, which looked like the size of a grapefruit, and did not come out easy...
