Default IMGs chances at neurosurgery?

Hi everyone,
I'd like to know your opinion about the chances of an IMG getting a spot in a neurosurgery program in a specific situation.

If an IMG student has:
- Excelent scores in both step 1 and 2ck (260+)
- 1-2 years of research in a neurosurgery lab from a good university, getting as a result some articles published in medline journals and a good professional network.
- Yet, this IMG student has NOT a PhD or any other kind of post-graduate degree.

Are his chances good? At least in the place where he did research?
Or, being an IMG, the chances are still near zero, virtually impossible? (As I've read in some other threads).

Thank you, very much.
