    1.25 CME | AANS Member: FREE| Non-member: $39

    image

    As neurosurgeons increasingly practice as part of multidisciplinary teams, major clinical advances are sometimes reported outside of neurosurgical meetings. Vital information for daily neurosurgical practice can be reported at a general oncology meeting, a stroke meeting in Europe or an orthopedic spine meeting. Few neurosurgeons can attend every important allied meeting and none can keep abreast of all of the fields that make up modern neurosurgery. 

    Yet, these new advances can be central to neurosurgical practice. In this course, section experts have combed the previous year’s allied-specialty meetings across the globe for important clinical trial advances every neurosurgeon should know about: brain tumors, interventional vascular techniques, spine techniques and more. Key findings are placed in context for both practicing neurosurgeons and residents.

      Highlight ongoing trials in allied clinical fields – where neurosurgery is headed in the future.
