Pioneering Russian Women Neurosurgeons

Dr. Vinogradova
Dr. Baimova
In Russia, women practiced as neurosurgeons decades before their American counterparts.  Little has been written about these pioneers-political barriers discouraged exchange throughout most of the 20th century.  I share these remarkable photographs a contemporary Russian neurosurgeon provided to bring them into the spotlight.  Perhaps, some stories about them will be shared.
