President's Letter Meeting FAQs

Be Prepared for a New Type of Interactive Meeting

Over time, attendees have grown comfortable with what to expect from a national neurosurgery meeting: presentations of research and studies, theoretical science and didactic lectures. This work and research is essential and will continue.

To rise to the challenge of renewed expectations, physician volunteers have been working for more than a year to completely transform the meeting and bring attendees captivating events, speakers and science.

Interactive "choose-your-adventure" style case presentations, patients sharing their experiences, literature reviews from ancillary fields, detailed technique discussions, complication case surveys, guest speaker panels - the 2021 meeting is unprecedented, designed to provide practical tools to improve your practice and patient care.
