Introduction

I wanted to be a neurosurgeon from when I was just a physician. After my activities in two countries and my scientific degree (Ph.D. – I have been named as a candidate of medical sciences), from 1984, my colleagues and I built up the Department of Neurosurgery in Győr, where we put effort into spine surgery and minimally invasive treatments besides general care. In 2013 I retired, when for two years I practiced neuro-spine surgery but due to my medical status, I continue as a consultant where I use my five decades of experience.
