Schaumburg, Ill., April 10, 2017—The Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) is pleased to announce its partnership with the Sixth Annual World Course in Advanced Brain Tumour Surgery, held June 7–11 in London, United Kingdom. This partnership works to support the global neurosurgical community in both established and developing countries through discounted admission and charitable donation to the CNS Foundation.
The CNS Initiative in Developing Countries provides the opportunity for neurosurgeons practicing in under-represented areas to attend Sixth Annual World Course in Advanced Brain Tumour Surgery at a 50 percent discount. Additionally, all CNS members are welcome to attend the course at a 10 percent discount, with a portion of his or her registration fee donated back to the CNS Foundation.
The course features five live surgeries performed by the global masters of neurosurgery, broadcast from USA, Germany, Italy, and China.

Course Directors Dr. George Samandouras and Dr. Mitchel Berger are internationally recognized leaders in neurological surgery and they developed an intensive and educational program to bring the latest in technology, science, and technique to surgeons across the globe.
Leading neurosurgical experts from Europe, Asia, South America, and the United States will serve as faculty of the course. Attendees will “Meet the Masters,” as highly renowned neurosurgeons such as Dr. Hugues Duffau, Dr. Costas Hadjipanayis, Dr. Jinsong Wu, amongst many more specialists in anatomy, technique, oncology, and technology and research, will be sharing their insight and expertise.
