Development history and prospect of functional neurosurgery in China
The functional neurosurgery in China started from stereotactic neurosurgery， and gradually
developed into an independent functional neurosurgery discipline. The diseases to be treated expanded from
Parkinson's disease to a complete spectrum of functional neurosurgery diseases. The surgical technique
also changed from focusing on nerve ablative procedures to paying equal attention to neuro lesion and
neuromodulation. Functional neurosurgery has developed rapidly in China and maintained a strong momentum of
development. It has become a new subdiscipline of neurosurgery with broad prospects.
