About the Washington Committee

The AANS/CNS Washington Committee develops and promotes organized neurosurgery’s positions on issues affecting the specialty. Through advocacy, policy development, and public relations, the Washington Committee and the Washington Office work vigorously to defend and protect the ability of neurosurgeons to practice medicine freely — and to help ensure the continued advancement of the specialty of neurological surgery.

This work is critical, as organized neurosurgery continues to be at the forefront of health policy debates, and constantly makes it clear to policymakers in the nation's capital that we are dedicated to advancing the specialty of neurological surgery in order to promote the highest quality of patient care and create a system that offers greater value tomorrow than it does today.
