Goodyear Microsurgery Training Lab

Established in 1986, the Goodyear Microsurgical Anatomy Laboratory has provided an environment where residents, fellows and medical students have transformed their knowledge on neurosurgical anatomy and produced many national and international contributions to the field. Testimony of those accomplishments are multiple landmark publications, including a two volume Atlas of Operative Microneurosurgery. 

One of the pioneering centers in research and education in microsurgical neuroanatomy, the Goodyear Laboratory has hosted and trained multiple surgeons from five continents, many of whom have become prominent leaders in the field. Built on this strong tradition, the Goodyear Laboratory has evolved with the speciality, incorporating and developing techniques and technologies to remain a trendsetter in neuroanatomy research with strong collaborations with partnering surgical specialities and subspecialties to highlight the team approach taken when treating our patients.

Students, residents and fellows are integral parts of this unique opportunity in education and training under the mentorship of a faculty with diverse skill sets and strong academic commitment. 

Research Fellowship

Fellowships in research within the Goodyear Lab are available. Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply for a research fellowship in the Goodyear Lab here.

Under the guidance of one of the research mentors, the fellow will lead anatomical research project(s) from their design until their completion.

Those interested in learning more information about the research fellowship are directed to contact Kathi Smith, Senior Research Assistant at


The Goodyear Laboratory has also served as a training facility for medical device and instrument companies. Formally known as Neurosurgery 101, more than one hundred courses have been taught to physicians, sales representatives and staff.
