Zimbabwe association of Neurological Surgeons
Neurosurgery has been rapidly evolving in Zimbabwe. The practice of Neurosurgery in the earlier years was mainly in the field of head injury, spinal injury, brain abscesses, and hydrocephalus. The only investigations which could be done were plain Xrays, pneumoencephalogram, carotid angiogram and EEG. Most of the earlier work during the colonial years to independence in 1980 was done at Harare Central hospital for the African patients and for the whites was at the then Salisbury Central Hospitals.
The ZANS fosters the highest standard of patient care and advances the specialty of neurological surgery.
