The evolution of Neurosurgery Learning 


We are a team of young neurosurgeons, developers and digital artists who have developed an innovative library of contents for your educational speed up. UpSurgeOn is the first platform dedicated to neurosurgery and neuroanatomy learning.

Our vision is to support neurosurgical education globally with hi-tech/low cost tools.



 This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 880895

Improve your 3D Skills

Thousands of neurosurgeons, residents and medical students are using AppSurgeOn


AppSurgeOn is the first App series designed to improve your 3D skills. Every content was engineered with the most advanced 3D technologies. Every model is the result of a novel process of "Scientific 3D Modelling".

Thousands of neurosurgeons and students worldwide are validating and supporting our results. Be one of us!
