MeftyDr. Ossama Al-Mefty receives the Olivecrona medal

Each year, the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, honors an international neurosurgeon for his or her contribution to brain and spinal cord surgery or research. Professor Herbert Olivecrona (1891-1980) was an internationally renowned neurosurgeon who is credited as being the father of modern neurosurgery in Sweden. He was professor of neurosurgery at the Karolinska Institute from 1935 to 1960.

The Olivecrona Award includes an invitation to the Laureate to deliver the Olivecrona Lecture at the Olivecrona Symposium held at the Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm in December, which is followed by a gala dinner. The Laureate receives the Olivecrona Medal and Diploma.

Dr. Ossama Al-Mefty, Harvard School of Medicine Boston, USA, will receive the 2011 Herbert Olivecrona Award in recognition of his important contributions to the field of skull base surgery, pioneering surgical techniques, as well as teaching neurosurgeons worldwide through numerous publications. His scientific contributions are reflected in over 350 publications that include authoring or editing seven books and 130 peer reviewed journal articles. He is a sought-after lecturer and has made over 400 presentations and over 50 Visiting Professorships at national and international universities.
