The pioneer of neurological surgery in an era when no radiological investigation was available including X-ray, Sir Victor Horsley has earned recognition as the father of neurosurgery. His intellect, interest, and concern for humanity has earned him the knighthood. His association with Sir William Gowers was very appreciable, which helped in the introduction and progress of spinal surgery. The birth and growth of spinal surgery by Sir Victor Horsley and his contributions are briefly discussed in this article.
