This site is directed mainly to the medical audience and neurosurgeons, partially aimed to present the operative and academic activities of Prof. Munir A. Elias Shawash over 40 years period. Here the neurosurgeon can find the standards and new modifications in the treatment strategies in paraplegia, brain tumor, spinal cord injuries, head injury, pain management strategies, including neuralgia of different etiologies, movement disorders. Neurosurgeon needs a very long way to understand that, experience is important in this field of medicine - neurosurgery.
Stroke and ruptured arterial aneurysms remain in the upper list of difficult problems, which are far from perfection and the mortality rate remains high. Spinal surgery is extensive and take 80% of the neurosurgical activities: prolapsed disc , lumbar, cervical and dorsal are the top ranking in practice followed by other degenerative spine problems, such as spondylolisthesis, OPLL with cervical and lumbar canal stenosis.
Neurosurgery has time-sensitive decision-making strategies. This is governed by the rapidly changing status of the patient. Neurosurgeon must react accordingly to the recent moment. He must be able to predict, or at least to keep in mind the possible complications, and react with caution to prevent them, before they escalate. Intraoperative video documentation made it possible to analyze and retrospectively discover some causes of complications, which the neurosurgeon previously blamed himself for that. It became clear, that some triggering factors for complications are presenting before their eminence.
Not all new standards in neurosurgery can stand time. Only the good for the patient's outcome will stand and remain even, if they are too old.
The last years at Shmaisani hospital functional neurophysiologic navigation ISIS Inomed Highline 32 channels and a Suite integrated with Siemens Skyra 3 tesla SWI, TWIST, Spectroscopy, fMRI, fibertraking (DTI) and 30 more other applications for intraoperative monitoring are in practice.
With the introduction of new technologies, new dimensions arise and new problems also. When you have more data, you have more information to deal with and your tactics and options also may expand further, but despite that, complications will remain and they will need solutions. At last we are human beings and the more effort you do, the more spirit comfort you will feel when your life come to end


The best solution for running intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring with 32 channel and all the needed protocols..
