The trials and trepidations of an emerging department, uncertainties of its survival midway through its course, the innovative ideas that initiated its development, a regimental discipline, addition of newer technological advances with changing times, and its blossoming as the one of the best departments in the region, mark the origin and development of the Department of Neurosurgery at Andhra Medical College (AMC) and King George Hospital (KGH) Visakhapatnam. AMC and KGH are getting ready to celebrate their centenary in 2023. This history of the department is derived from the knowledge of the immense effort and academic discipline that was required to bring it to its current stature. Dr. Sunkara Balaparameswara Rao (SBP Rao) established the Neurosurgical Unit at the AMC and the KGH, Visakhapatnam on 2nd April 1956. He has had the unique privilege of witnessing the entire history of the department, from the inception till today, which represents 60 years of continuous progress of the department after its establishment. He also took a very active role in organizing its Diamond Jubilee function held on 23rd September 2016. The first author of this article has also had the privilege of witnessing and being a part of the history of the department during the past half a century. This is a narration of what may be better termed 'the (hi) story of 60 years of Neurosurgery at AMC and KGH', Visakhapatnam, India.
