Neurosurgeon recognized with original biomedical art

Image of Stacey KrumholtzAn original watercolour-and-ink painting created by Stacey Krumholtz was awarded by the Journal of Neurosurgery publishing group to neurosurgeon Dr. Martin Weiss to recognize his 20 years of service as editor-in-chief of Neurosurgical Focus.

Krumholtz, who graduated with a Master of Science in Biomedical Communications in 2015, is the Biomedical Communications Specialist at the Arthur & Sonia Labatt Brain Tumour Research Centre at SickKids Hospital in Toronto.

Dr. James Rutka, director of the Brain Tumour Research Centre and editor-in-chief of the Journal of Neurosurgery, commissioned the painting of endoscopic transphenoidal surgery for presentation to Dr. Weiss who will continue as associate editor of Neurosurgical Focus.

“Art is so subjective that it can be a tricky gift to create for someone you don’t know,” says Krumholtz, “but when it works out and they like it—I think it’s a hard gift to beat!”

Krumholtz’s piece was presented to Dr. Weiss at the AANS annual meeting which took place April 30 to May 4, 2016 in Chicago.
