Abstract

AbstractWALLACE HAMBY STARTED the first practice dedicated to neurosurgery in Buffalo in 1933. Several years later, he was able to establish a residency program and became nationally known for his treatments of cerebral aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations. It was up to Louis Bakay to create an academic department within the State University of New York system and to incorporate an active and successful research program. This tradition has been expanded and enriched under the present leadership of L. Nelson Hopkins. The department is now well recognized, has 10 full-time staff members, and performs approximately 2000 procedures annually. There are numerous research opportunities available, at both the resident and fellowship levels.
