Hans Sølling: Danish pioneer neurosurgeon

Hans Sølling: Danish pioneer neurosurgeon

Journal of Neurosurgery 81(3): 487-492

Hans Adolf Sølling (1879-1945), working completely on his own in the small town of Horsens, was Denmark's first neurosurgeon. Sølling was an admirable and talented man who performed major intracranial operations on more than 130 patients suffering from trigeminal neuralgia, as well as treating epilepsy, craniotrauma, brain tumors, glossopharyngeal neuralgia, and myelomeningoceles. Although not in the same league as Harvey Cushing (1869-1939), Vilhelm Magnus in Norway (1871-1929), and Herbert Olivecrona in Sweden (1891-1980), Sølling was a true Danish pioneer.
