“A Celebration of Neurosurgery!” is the theme to this fall’s annual Congress of Neurological Surgeons Meeting being held in San Francisco from October 16-21. The CNS welcomes those interested to submit an abstract by the April 8 deadline. To submit an abstract go to http://2010.cns.org. Contact the CNS with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Original Science Program comprises three distinct formats: Top Ten Abstracts, the Neurosurgical Forum, and Digital Posters. Irrespective of presentation format, all original science abstracts are also made continuously available and then archived after the meeting as online digital posters.
Registration is still open to attend the First International Congress on Treatment of Dystonia. The conference, taking place May 6-8 in Hannover, Germany, consists of workshops, forums and lectures for dystonia experts and caretakers.
Dystonia is a movement disorder that can be helped with deep brain stimulation. The goal of this meeting is to advance existent therapies, improve their differential use and stimulate research in new therapeutic approaches.
Early registration fees are still available for the AANS/CNS Section on Pain taking place on April 30, 2010, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The title of this year’s all-day meeting is “Complication Avoidance in the Neurosurgical Pain Patient: How to Make the Situation Better, Not Worse.”
The day’s discussions include psychological assessment of the chronic pain patient, medicolegal issues involving chronic pain patients, intrathecal infusion therapy and complications of neuromodulation.
