Since founding his neurosurgery practice in Louisiana in 2001, Dr. Ilyas Munshi has specialized in spinal, brain, and peripheral nerve surgery. Dr. Ilyas Munshi, a board-certified neurosurgeon, also remains active in his field as a member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS).
Every year, the AANS celebrates Neurosurgery Awareness Month by highlighting neurological safety topics, injury prevention, back pain, and traumatic brain injury. The AANS recently recognized Neurosurgery Awareness Month in August 2015 with a new focus on the actual neurosurgeons who dedicate themselves to the challenging specialty practice.
The series includes a photo essay by a young couple coping with brain cancer, a profile of sibling neurosurgeons, and several stories from neurosurgical patients. Along with publications illuminating specific neurosurgeons and their patients, the AANS issued several abstracts for Neurosurgery Awareness Month 2015, such as “The Management of Head Injury and Philosophical Currents in the History of Neurosurgery.”
