The history of neurosurgery in Faculty of Medicine Universitas Indonesia and Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital can not be separated from the development of neurosurgery in Indonesia. The neurosurgery service in Jakarta is the “embryo” of neurosurgery in large.
Neurosurgery service was started since 1948 upon the initiative of Prof. C.H. Lenshoek, the father of Dutch Neurochirurgi, who was born in Indonesia and had deep affection to Indonesia. With the help of Dutch Red Cross, he established neurochirurgi clinic which aim to help war victim. This clinic had not been a part of CBZ hospital, later on known as Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital. A hospital special for
Neurosurgery with facilities for diagnose, care, surgery and rehabilitation was established as Princes Margriet Hospital, located at Jl. Raden Saleh no 49. The neurosurgeon from the Dutch Association of Neurosergon voluntarily worked for 6 months serving in this clinic. They were: Dr P. Hanraet, Dr. A.C. de Vet dari Wassenaar, Dr. Wiersma from Rotterdam, Prof.Dr. Noordenbos from Amsterdam, Dr. M.P.A.M de Groot dari Tilburg and Prof.Dr.C.H. Lenshoek from Amsterdam who later on became professor in Groningen. The last specialist was Dr. P. Albert who is a Spanish. He worked until 1952 under the management of Indonesian Government.
In the beginning of 1960’s, the relationship between Salemba and Raden Saleh was not very good. In consideration to give better service to the patient, on December 1964, the Department of Neurosergery was moved to the main building at Jalan Diponegoro no. 71. The new location of the department was at the room that was previously left by Pulmonology Department that moved to Persahabatan Hospital. At the beginning, the capacity was 90 beds, but later on it was reduced to 31 beds due to limitation number of neurosurgeon.
Currently, patients were accommodated at Building A level V. The number of beds are still maintained although the number of neurosurgeon is now 11 people. The number of surgery is now increased to be 200 surgeries per year with various type of diseases with modern equipment for diagnostic and operative purposes.
Currently the Department of Neurosurgery FKUI-RSCM is headed by dr. Samsul Ashari, SpBS(K).
