FULL TEXT  


After the senior author took chairmanship in Helsinki University Hospital in, he led the department into making neurosurgical operations much faster, safer and workflow more efficient, and at the same time maintaining high surgical quality and results. The aim was to describe the philosophies and style of Helsinki Microneurosurgery. The philosophies of Helsinki Neurosurgery are categorized into two concepts: The operation room TEAM concept and the main principle “Simple, clean, fast and respecting the normal anatomy”. The way to be efficient is to find good methods based on logic, reason and experience. Specific and systematic procedures before the microneurosurgery followed by high quality skills under the microscope are of utmost importance. Moreover, intraoperatively, neuroanesthesia has to provide good surgical conditions. Today, Helsinki University Central hospital Department of Neurosurgery has an annual workflow 3500 neurosurgical operations. We believe that microneurosurgical treatment remains to be important for years ahead, and neurosurgeons of great hearts, minds and skills are welcomed all over the world.
