Thank You for Attending the 83rd AANS Annual Scientific Meeting
Washington Monument

With the theme Neurosurgery’s Founding Principles, the 83rd American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Annual Scientific Meeting welcomed more than 3,000 medical attendees to Washington, D.C., to celebrate and reflect on both the history and future of neurosurgery.

Invited speakers, including Peyton Manning; Bill Walton; Charles Krauthammer, MD; Spencer Wells, PhD; and Sally Satel, MD; gave inspiring talks, drawing connections between their worlds of sports, genetics, politics, and journalism and the world of neurosurgery.

For the first time, neurosurgeons created and presented series of AANS History Films that examined the overlapping characteristics between the originators of modern neurosurgery and the founding fathers of the U.S.A.

The AANS Annual Scientific Meeting offered cutting-edge practice and research through Practical Clinics, Breakfast Seminars and hundreds of scientific abstracts and presentations, bringing meeting attendees the future of neurosurgery in the exhibit hall, lectures and classrooms.
