Xiang’en Shi, MD, Ph.D, Professor and chairman of   Neurosurgery department in ‘Beijing Sanbo Brain Hospital’ and ‘Capital Medical University’, Beijing, China. His clinical field of interest is in microsurgical cerebral revascularization of complex aneurysms and aggressive microsurgical resection of craniopharyngioma. He has more than 800 microsurgical experiences in craniopharyngioma cases since 1985.  Aneurysms in more than 150 cases, that were once considered untreatable or jeopardy because of their difficult clipping or coiling, are now being treated successfully through microsurgical cerebral revascularization. Dr. Shi has been published 100  articles in various domestic and international journals and he is an active member of numerous professional organization. His research interests focus on cerebral ischemia and skull base anatomy.
