Contribution to Neurosurgery in Kolkata

After training in neurosurgery, he returned to Kolkata in 1994 to start a neurosurgery wing in the erstwhile Park Nursing Home with minimal facilities. From there he was instrumental in developing the present Park Neurosciences Services at Park Clinic, a department now recognized for post-doctoral training in neurosurgery with DNB in neurosurgery, a training centre in pediatric neurosurgery recognized by the International Society for Paediatric Neurosurgery, and a AO Spine training Centre in spine surgery. He is currently Education Officer in Neurosurgery for the national AO Spine Council in India. The department currently performs about 1800 brain and spine operations in a year.

When Dr. Sandip Chatterjee returned to Kolkata in 1994 there was no operating microscope for neurosurgery available anywhere outside one Govt department at BIN. He was the FIRST to purchase with his own funds an operating microscope for Park Nursing Home which is now the first microscope in the private sector in Kolkata. This Department now boasts of the most state-of-the-art robotic operating microscope, the only one of its kind in Eastern India. He was thus the first to start CERVICAL SPINE microdiscectomies in the private sector. In 2001, he was also the FIRST neurosurgeon in Kolkata to start endoscopic neurosurgery.
