Guidelines Repository for Neurosurgery


The AANS developed an Online Guidelines Repository for Neurosurgery to facilitate the search for guidelines related to neurosurgical practice. This web site area at times posts the full guideline, but generally provides a link to the organization that publishes the information. Inclusion on this web site does not constitute a guarantee, approval or endorsement of these guidelines by the American Association of Neurological Surgeons. Requests for more information will need to be directed to the guideline's publisher.

The online repository will change periodically to reflect the advances in guideline development, but is not a complete listing. If you know of a guideline that you feel is appropriate for posting in this area, please submit your request or recommendation to the AANS at memberservices@aans.org.
