Well-known in Ukraine and abroad neurosurgeon, scientist, teacher. Organizer and leader of a new field in neurosurgery – restorative neurosurgery. Developed and implemented in clinical practice new neurosurgical operations aimed at restoring impaired nervous system functions, which are protected by numerous copyright certificates for inventions and patents. He started a new direction – neurotransplantation. In experimental models of traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and peripheral nerves, cerebral ischemia, lesions of visual and auditory analyzers, neurodegenerative diseases of the CNS studied the effect of transplantation of embryonic nerve tissue on the processes of regeneration of the nervous system.
