Gulhane Military Medical Academy, Department of Neurosurgery, Turkey DOI : 10.5137/1019-5149.JTN.6857-12.1 Dr. Zinnur Rollas is the founder of the Department of Neurosurgery at the Gulhane Military Medical Academy (GMMA). He was educated in the United States and returned to Turkey in order to practice neurosurgery. He is also the first surgeon who performed pediatric neurosurgical procedures at GMMA. Dr. Rollas operated on many pediatric cases of meningocele, myelomeningocele, encephalocele, hydrocephalus and trauma. He not only performed the surgeries but also took the pictures and recorded the data of the patients. Unfortunately, he did not publish any of these cases. In this paper, we tried to document his experience on pediatric neurosurgery, and to summarize the evolution of pediatric neurosurgery at GMMA. Keywords : Pediatric neurosurgery, Gulhane Military Medical Academy, Zinnur Rollas
