Best Answer

Ancient skulls have been found with holes cut in them, showing evidence that the bone re-grew after the cuts had been made. Whether this was actually brain surgery is another matter, but it's clear that that patient lived for years after the procedure. The procedure is called trepanning or trepanation.
