Hello all! I'd be interested in hearing the thoughts of some surgeons on offering fellowship training for non-neurosurgeons in minimally invasive neurosurgical techniques (e.g. gamma knife, DBS), in a manner akin to radiology/neurology getting trained in neurointerventional techniques. I realize this is a radical view, but especially for some of these techniques (DBS) it seems possible to do a 2-year fellowship training and come out with a very specific surgical skill, even if a non-surgeon. Of course a surgeon would need to be available for emergencies, etc. Ignoring the "turf war battle" thoughts this might elicit, anyone see this as a practical training avenue in the future? For example, a movement disorder neurologist getting trained in doing STN DBS? I'm not a neurologist or a neurosurgeon, just to throw that out there! Thanks for any thoughts, opinions!
