On behalf of the Scientific Committee; it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 11th annual meeting of the Saudi Association of Neurological Surgery (SANS). Our understanding of life and matter in the 21st century is rapidly evolving; this stems from the new scientific discoveries and the emergence of new technologies that facilitated knowledge exchange. The field of neurosurgery is directly, and indirectly, impacted by these changes which is affecting the way we manage neurosurgical diseases. We believe that our specialty deals with the most complex structure known to man, the Central Nervous System (CNS), which demands us to be part of this revolution. Thus, we dedicated this year’s meeting to introduce and explore new inventions, latest technologies and the endless opportunities they create to advance our filed. The theme for this year meeting is “Invention, Innovation and Technology transfer”.
An exciting and powerful program is being prepared with contributions from prominent national and international speakers from renowned institutions around the world. The conference is preceded by a full day of pre-conference courses and workshops dedicated to topics related to our filed. The pre-conference activities are designed to provide knowledge, recent updates, and skills which would be of value to many disciplines and specialties dealing with neurological diseases. The courses are aimed to benefit medical students, residents, trainees, specialists, and consultants.
We also continued our annual tradition of conducting the students research competition which will be held at the same evening of the pre-conference day.
The focus of three-day scientific program will be on latest advances in medicine in general and neurosurgery in particular. The program is further divided in to sessions that include; invention in neurosurgery, translational research, and cutting edge research in neurosurgery. Special sessions are dedicated to discuss the application of these new technologies in our daily practice. This year we added two new sessions; “Neurosurgery in Saudi Arabia; the 2030 vision” which will bring to light the new changes, growing challenges, and the future of the filed in the Kingdom. And “How I do it” which is conducted by the world expert in complex neurosurgical approaches. Focused sessions divided between neurosurgery sub-specialties will be also conducted.
Save the date and we look forward to seeing you in SANS 2017.
