Abstract Microneurosurgical cadaveric dissections have become popular due to their usefulness in obtaining a working knowledge of the microneurosurgical anatomy in a controlled environment. This same controlled environment is also conducive to experiment with new surgical approaches. These factors have increased the number of microneurosurgical anatomic laboratories. Despite the increase in microneurosurgical laboratories, there is very little literature regarding the logistics of starting and maintaining a new neurosurgical laboratory. The aim of this paper is to provide a general road map and basic guidelines in starting and running a microneurosurgical dissection laboratory. The information in this paper is based on a review of the literature and on the experience we gained in organizing and managing the Dardinger Microneurosurgical Skull Base Laboratory at The Ohio State University.
