For the last week, GNI has had the pleasure of hosting fellow neurosurgeon Daniel Christoph, MD, of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Dr. Christoph has been practicing neurosurgery in Brazil since he completed his residency in 2009. He travelled to Macon to shadow Dr. DeCastro and learn some of his minimally invasive techniques. While Dr. Christoph can perform some minimally invasive procedures, his desire is to learn additional skills that will shorten surgery time. We have enjoyed having him here at GNI. Come back and visit again, Dr. Christoph!
