#TSKanaka (Thanjavur Santhanakrishna Kanaka) was a pioneer in neurosurgery, as one of the first neurosurgeons in the world
and the first female neurosurgeon in Asia.
She was the first neurosurgeon in India to perform chronic electrode implants in the brain & first to perform deep brain stimulation as early as in 1975.
