The COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenge unlike any neurosurgery has ever faced. To survive and thrive, our specialty must stand united. The American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Annual Scientific Meeting has always offered a forum to advance science and exchange ideas, and the need for this sense of community is now more critical than ever.

The theme of the 2021 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting is Neurosurgery United: Stronger Together. We hope you plan on joining us in Vancouver, as the latest science is presented and we map out the future of neurosurgery.


Be part of the innovative scientific programming at the 2021 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting in Vancouver. The Abstract Center closes Oct. 20, 2020 at 5 pm CT.
