Surgery at the NPI
The first operating room case was on December 9, 1941 which was performed by Drs. Oldberg and Green. The next day these two doctors would perform the second case involving a ventricular tumor.
One of the most notable cases to take place was the separation of the conjoined Brodie twins in 1952. The surgeon, Dr. Oscar Surgar, was able to successfully separate the twins, however, only one was to survive the procedure. The remaining twin, Rodney, lived until the age 11.
