Global Neurosurgery Virtual Conference – September 10-12, 2020 – Free Registration
Global Neurosurgery: Ask Not for Whom the Bell Tolls – Virtual Symposium
Thursday – Saturday, September 10 – 12, 2020
The landmark 2015 Lancet Commission on Global Surgery stressed the dire need for surgery in a global context while presenting the vast inequities of access to safe, affordable and quality surgery. In the April 2019 issue of the Journal of Neurosurgery, Dr. James T. Rutka emphasized that the estimated gross domestic product loss from patients suffering from neurosurgical diseases will exceed $4.4 trillion over the next 15 years. There are approximately 50,000 neurosurgeons worldwide, but an additional 23,000 neurosurgeons are needed to meet current patient loads, specifically in Africa and Southeast Asia.
This is a neurosurgical colloquium intended to educate, innovate, and foster a deeper understanding in Global Neurosurgery. A galaxy of international superstars will be joining us to address the various aspects of neurosurgery.
Free symposium registration fee for all healthcare professionals, trainees and students.
