Indian pediatric neurosurgery has come a long way! It all started with the dream of one person with a passion for pediatric neurosurgery and the zeal to develop this subspeciality in India. Over the years, his persistence and perseverance finally culminated in the International Society of Pediatric Neurosurgery (ISPN) coming to Bombay, as it was then called, for its annual meeting in 1989. The spark was ignited. This meeting, attended by several Indians, enthused them to establish the Indian Society of Pediatric Neurosurgery (IndSPN) in 1990 with this dreamer, Prof. S. N. Bhagwati, as the founder President.

Interest in pediatric neurosurgery has increased over the years with several neurosurgeons taking this up as their special interest. The demographics of the country and the shortage of neurosurgeons precludes them from doing only pediatric neurosurgery to the exclusion of the rest of neurosurgery - but often the heart is in pediatric neurosurgery. A major role in kindling this interest has been the willingness of the International Society to hold academic meetings and Continuing Medical Education meetings frequently in India. The Indian Society has been holding regular conferences and has a good academic program. Its journal, "Journal of Pediatric Neurosciences" is in its 6th year of publication and attracts contributions from both India and overseas.

It is our great honor that the International Society of Pediatric Neurosurgery is again coming to India for the 39th Annual Conference in Goa from 16th to 20th October, 2011. We are bringing out a special issue of Journal of Pediatric Neurosciences on this occasion. This issue is on "Pediatric Neurosurgery - Indian Perspective" and aims to highlight Indian pediatric neurosurgery contributions and achievements. It has historical articles on how we started our journey and also our experiences and views on a variety of pediatric neurosurgical topics. The 17th Annual conference of ISPN marked the start of the journey for pediatric neurosurgery in India and we hope the 39 th Annual conference marks the achievement of international standards for the Indian Society of Pediatric Neurosurgery.
