The Story Behind
Baskent University, Faculty of Medicine, Neurosurgery Department, Ankara, Turkey The Executive Committee of the Neurosurgical Society that functioned during 1988-1990 period under the leadership of Dr's Tunçalp Özgen and Yücel Kanpolat realized many major accomplishments. Each of these senior neurosurgeons served as presidents of the Society for one year. Dr. Nur Altınörs was the General Secretary while Dr. Kemali Baykaner served as the associate secretary and Dr. Nuri Arda served as the treasurer thus composing the Executive Committee. The most important project was to receive the right to add “Turkish” to the title of the society. This required a long and tiresome formal process and final approval by the Turkish Government; the society gained the privilege of being the only organization to bear this title as far as neurosurgical societies in the country were concerned. This development enabled the society to be the legal representative of the Turkish Neurosurgical Community and maintain regular scientific and administrative relations with international neurosurgical organizations and societies.
