Neurosurgery in Tanzania
Earlier, Tanzania could not satisfy the population’s medical needs; the country’s top hospitals are in Dar es Salaam. As a result, Tanzanian Patients get treatment from public hospitals. Neurological Diseases are widely spread all over the country, but because of little awareness and Tanzanian people are missing out on early diagnosis and treatment at the start. But because of the Tanzanian Government’s Initiations, collaborations, and projects, Tanzania’s healthcare system is developing, which decreased the Neurosurgery cost in Tanzania as the surgery is performed within the country by Tanzanian Neurosurgeons. In Tanzania, neurosurgery is also known as brain surgery. Disorders of the brain, peripheral nervous system, and spinal cord are addressed, along with their diagnosis, prevention, and surgical therapy.
History of Neurosuregry in Tazania:
In Tanzania, formal neurosurgery was first practiced in the early 1970s. Despite many challenges, neurosurgery is quickly gaining acceptance and carving out a position for itself in Tanzania’s modern medical system.
Through a coordinated effort, neurosurgical services were developed in Tanzania. The development of contemporary neurosurgery techniques in Tanzania is largely the result of foreign help. Foreign cooperation has been crucial to the field’s development, whether through Reulen’s work or the educational opportunities training abroad gave local Tanzanian neurosurgeons.
