Indian pediatric neurosurgery has come a long way! It all started with the dream of one person with a passion for pediatric neurosurgery and the zeal to develop this subspeciality in India. Over the years, his persistence and perseverance finally culminated in the International Society of Pediatric Neurosurgery (ISPN) coming to Bombay, as it was then called, for its annual meeting in 1989. The spark was ignited. This meeting, attended by several Indians, enthused them to establish the Indian Society of Pediatric Neurosurgery (IndSPN) in 1990 with this dreamer, Prof. S. N. Bhagwati, as the founder President.

Interest in pediatric neurosurgery has increased over the years with several neurosurgeons taking this up as their special interest. The demographics of the country and the shortage of neurosurgeons precludes them from doing only pediatric neurosurgery to the exclusion of the rest of neurosurgery - but often the heart is in pediatric neurosurgery. A major role in kindling this interest has been the willingness of the International Society to hold academic meetings and Continuing Medical Education meetings frequently in India. The Indian Society has been holding regular conferences and has a good academic program. Its journal, "Journal of Pediatric Neurosciences" is in its 6th year of publication and attracts contributions from both India and overseas.

The operation removes any blood or debris (from infection or inflammation) that may be blocking or blurring light as it focuses on the retina. Your eye doctor will determine if the surgery can be done with local or general anesthesia. The surgery lasts 2 to 3 hours. Vitrectomy may require an overnight hospital stay, but it may sometimes be done as outpatient surgery.
