The neurosurgery service at the Medical College of Georgia, Georgia Regents University at Augusta has a rich history spanning almost 6 decades. Here, we review the development of neurological surgery as a specialty in Augusta and the history of the Department of Neurosurgery at Georgia Regents University. This article describes some of the early neurosurgeons in the city and those who have contributed to the field and helped to shape the department. Our functional and stereotactic program is emphasized. Our surgical epilepsy program dates back more than a half-century and remains a highly experienced program. We also describe our affiliation with the medical illustration graduate program, which was the first to be accredited and remains 1 of 4 such programs in the world. Finally, we list our alumni, former faculty, and current faculty, as well as the major accomplishments in our first decade as a full department.
