Although there are many reports regarding the spinal surgical applications before the 19th century, the definition of spinal disorders and application of the most novel surgical techniques have been performed in last 2 centuries. Lumbar spinal stenosis was reported in the first half of the 20th century. The definition of the lumbar spinal stenosis was commonly attributed to Dr. Verbiest. However, there were some reports regarding the symptoms attributable to lumbar spinal stenosis before him. On the other hand, Dr. Sarpyener, a Turkish surgeon, reported for the first time congenital spinal stenosis, a special variety of spinal stenosis. The aim of this study is to review the biography, scientific studies, and spine applications of Dr. Sarpyener, a pioneer in the field of spina bifida and congenital spinal stenosis.
