Goodyear Microsurgery Training Lab

The University of Cincinnati Goodyear Microsurgery Training Laboratory was established in 1986 as a premier education, teaching and research facility for residents, fellows, faculty, advanced practice providers and practicing physicians.




The primary goal of the laboratory is to provide a setting for neurosurgeons often working collaboratively with ENT head and neck surgeons to learn surgical anatomy and become skilled with microsurgical and endoscopic procedures including instrumentation. Residents and fellows learn in the laboratory simulating ordinary, extraordinary and innovative surgical procedures that they will ultimately perform in the operating room.

Research Laboratory

The laboratory serves as a research facility for residents, fellows and faculty to pursue investigative studies focused on surgical anatomy, surgical corridors and surgical procedures. The Goodyear Microsurgery Laboratory is nationally and internationally recognized for its contributions to surgical anatomy and surgical procedures focused on complex intracranial surgery.


The Goodyear Laboratory has also served as a training facility for medical device and instrument companies including Carl Zeiss Inc., Codman Instrument Co., and Integra Life Sciences. Now formally known as Neurosurgery 101, over 100 courses have been taught to physicians, sales representatives, and staff.
