EVIDENCE EXISTS THAT trephination was performed in Germany as early as the
Stone Age. Late medieval barber surgeons further developed instruments and
techniques for this procedure. Various surgeons performed individual cranial
operations before the 1870s, and neurosurgery evolved as a distinct
discipline in Germany around 1934. Before the 20th century, most cranial
operations in Germany, as in other European countries, were performed for
Since approximately 1870, a few individuals with a devoted interest in
surgery of the nervous system have developed operative techniques for the
brain and spinal cord. Wilhelm Wagner, Fedor Krause, Ernst von Bergmann, and
Otfrid Foerster were among these pioneers. Through independent research based
on careful clinical observation, these physicians contributed significantly
to an understanding of the pathophysiology of nervous system disorders that
could be treated surgically. They designed techniques, such as those used for
intracranial pressure regulation, and developed operative procedures, such as
the osteoplastic flap of Wagner, and cortical stimulation, which was
performed by Krause and Foerster.
