I was able to gain excellent training at the highest level. So far, the program has exceeded all my expectations, with personable Professors and a great Residency team to support my participation. Moreover, meeting different Neurosurgeons with different educational backgrounds gives me valuable networking opportunities, allowing me to constantly learn from them.
With words it is difficult to explain just how much knowledge I have been able to receive regarding “differential diagnosis”. I find Japanese doctors are very strong in that.
I feel myself very lucky to have a chance to participate in clinical neurosurgery fellowship in Tokyo Women’s Medical University Medical Center East’s Neurosurgery department.
First of all I am thankful to Professor Hidetoshi Kasuya and his team. They were very kind to me and always put my benefits higher than their own.
I do appreciate all efforts of the World Federation of Neurosurgery Society for organizing such kind of fellowships for neurosurgery doctors from developing countries.
Also my thanks to Professor Yoko Kato from Fujita Health University to persuade Professor Kasuya to join WFNS’s foundation program.
I strongly recommend to young neurosurgeons from developing countries to participate in this fellowship program.

I would like to express my profound thankfulness to Professor Kasuya for having given me a wonderful chance to study in his department at Tokyo Women Medical University, Medical Center East. I have learned a lot of useful things from him. It is an excellent team and I was so lucky to be a member of that team during three months. I observed delicate surgeries Professor Kasuya and his team performed, such as microvascular decompression, aneurysms clipping, meningioma resection and STA-MCA by pass, etc. I also had chance to study endovascular treatment with his team. I found they are so good at it. During my stay in his department, Professor Kasuya gave me very interesting lectures about MVD, meningioma resection and aneurysms clipping on Wednesday mornings. He has a lot of experience about those surgeries and I was lucky to learn from him.
Besides professional knowledge, I also learned a lot of things from the way he organizes and leads his team in clinical work and scientific research. I will apply them to develop my department in Vietnam. In conclusion, what I got during my study in his department will be very useful for my professional career. Especially, thanks to what I learned from him, I think I will be able to do aneurysms clipping when coming back home and I will do MVD better. I still remember a patient of his who was suffered from trigeminal neuralgia said happily that she changed her life after a successful MVD. I hope I will be able to bring happiness to many patients in Vietnam as he does. Again, I would like to thank you very much Professor Kasuya for allowing me to join his team. My memory with him and his team will be one of the greatest memories of my life.
