Congress of Neurological Surgeons 2014
October means that Fall is in the air… and that the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) has once again held its annual meeting.
The CNS calls itself the global leader in neurosurgical education, and for good reason. Its annual conference is one of the main places that doctors from around the world meet up in order to “give back” to the field of neurosurgery by sharing what they have learned with their colleagues from across the globe.
This year, the meeting was held in Boston, MA, from October 18-22. As usual, it was packed with classes, lectures, presentations and traditions (…read a bit about CU neurosurgeon–and past CNS president–Dr. Quest’s annual trombone performance here).
When not enjoying Dr. Quest’s trombone, the doctors were busy collaborating with neurosurgeons from near and far, sharing knowledge in order to improve patient care everywhere. The department had a strong showing of attendees and presenters this year.
