Change of Chinese Title for "Neurosurgery"
The College of Surgeons of Hong Kong had observed that the public is not aware of the scope of services covered in "Neurosurgery" by referring to its Chinese title "腦外科", which only indicates “Neurosurgery” covers area of the brain, but does not truly reflect "Neurosurgery" as a discipline of Surgery that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of the conditions of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. The College therefore proposed to change the existing Chinese name to "神經外科", which is also used in Taiwan and Mainland China. The Academy Council approved the change of the Chinese title at its meeting in November. The Medical Council of Hong Kong has been notified.
