Annual Meeting 2015

Annual Meeting Guide
The CNS Annual Meeting is the premier forum for exploring controversial and hot-button issues impacting the neurosurgical specialty and for learning about the most cutting-edge procedures, approaches, and technologies in the field.  Our 2015 meeting theme highlights the rich tradition of mentorship within our specialty and celebrates our association with Walter E. Dandy, one of the great mentors and founding fathers of neurosurgery.

CNS President Dr. Nathan R. Selden welcomes you to the CNS Annual Meeting and shares scientific program highlights such as Hot Topics, Controversy Sessions, and Consensus Sessions, as well as three new Live Surgery presentations. He also touches on this year's lineup of featured speakers, and shares his thoughts on Walter Dandy and the theme of Mentorship.
