Neurosurgeons in Kenya

At the level of scientific hospital medicine, there were sporadic reports of general surgeons carrying out neurosurgical procedures. These examples were of course limited mainly to the King George V hospital (later Kenyatta National Hospital). For example Dr. J. F. Jarvis, in the late fifties to early sixties is reported to have performed anterior encephaloceles, and anterior third ventriculostomies for hydrocephalus.

Peter Clifford,an Irish surgeon and an ENT specialist also performed a number of procedures but documentation is scarce. In 1967 Dr. Renato Ruberti joined the staff at the Kenyatta National Hospital. He graduated and also undertook postgraduate training in neurosurgery at the University of Padua Medical School, Italy. Joined the Kenyatta National Hospital on an honorary basis and is accredited with founding neurosurgery in Kenya. He was actively involved in training.
