It is said that making a start is half the job done. The same can be said for starting a new institute, a new department, or a new facility. Neurotrauma at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Rishikesh made humble beginnings in June 2016 when a patient with L1 compression burst fracture with paraparesis with urinary retention presented to the Outpatient Department and underwent surgery. The neurotrauma facilities at the institute got a major push with the beginning of emergency and trauma services in June 2017. The Department of Neurosurgery at AIIMS Rishikesh takes up cases of traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries, and peripheral nerve injuries.
