There are many things you have to know before you become a neurosurgeon. Many early contributed to the field of neurosurgery, such as Sir William Mac Ewen and Harvey Cushing. Mac Ewen advanced the surgical field and also the neurological mapping of the brain which shows what part of the brain controls a certain bodily function. Harvey Cushing was an American who was responsible for developing the method that reduced the high mortality rate of brain surgeries to 10 percent and involved the use of x-rays to take pictures of the head.

Throughout the Ancient world there were many extremely knowledgeable physicians and philosophers who made significant contributions to medicine throughout their lifetimes. The most prominent examples of these are Galen and Hippocrates who both lived in the ancient Greek empire between about 500BC and 200AD. Hippocrates is best known for his work on the Hippocratic Collection and similarly Galen is also well known for the books he wrote. Both Galen and Hippocrates believed in diet and exercise as advice to avoid illness and disease and they both wrote down and documented all their discoveries and advice which extremely contributed to medicine, purely because it meant their knowledge could be used after they died, they also both observed patients very carefully and encouraged other doctors to do so, which made their ideas spread and contributions increase. However, in my opinion Hippocrates made a larger contribution to medicine that Galen did for a variety of reasons.
