Dr. Ladislau Steiner, the Alumni Professor of Neurosurgery at the Health System, has received the Sugita Award at the Fourth Congress of the International Society for Neurosurgical Technology and Instrument Invention in Queensland, Australia. Steiner was involved with the development of the gamma knife, which allows a physician to perform brain surgery without a scalpel or actually entering the skull. Steiner was the first doctor to use the device on arteriovenous malformation and several types of tumors.
