5th Annual Meeting of Serbian Neurosurgical Society
Dear colleagues and friends, It is my honor, privilege and pleasure to invite you to the upcoming 5th Annual Meeting of Serbian Neurosurgical Society with international participation “Neurovascular supersessions: Exo? Endo? Hybrid? Quo vadis?” which will be held in Kragujevac, Serbia, on October 25th-27th, 2019.
We are pleased that the 5th Annual Meeting of Serbian Neurosurgical Society will be held as a joint venture with EANS Section for Vascular Neurosurgery, Hungarian Neurosurgical Society and Japan Neurosurgical Society, Section for Vascular Neurosurgery, in conjunction with Croatian Society for Cerebrovascular and Endovascular Neurosurgery and Southeast Europe Neurosurgical Society.
Cerebrovascular diseases represent the second most common cause of the mortality and morbidity. Vascular neurosurgery, as an area that includes surgical treatment of aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations AVM), cavernous angiomas and other vascular pathological brain formations, requires a combination of decision making process, intensive care, microsurgical skills and advanced surgical technologies. Successful treatment of brain vascular anomalies has always been a challenging venture for which it is necessary to use a multidisciplinary approach and a multidisciplinary team of experts.
Serbian Neurosurgical Society is delighted that The Fifth Annual Meeting of Serbian Neurosurgical Society will feature renowned international and national experts from the field of vascular neurosurgery, who will gather together in Kragujevac, in order to improve the quality of neurosurgical service and education today, for the sake of a better tomorrow.
Thereby we are also marking three important anniversaries 96 years since the founding of neurosurgery in Serbia, 81 years of the Clinic of Neurosurgery at the Clinical Center of Serbia and 35 years of the Department of Neurosurgery, Clinical Center of Kragujevac. In many ways the city of Kragujevac can be called “the first in Serbia” – it was the first capital of the modern Serbian state and the first gymnasium and the lyceum, the forerunner of the University of Belgrade, were founded in this beautiful city, as well as the first court, theater, newspaper, pharmacy, picture gallery, museum and library.
The host city of Kragujevac is a significant economic, cultural, educational and health center of Sumadija and it is well known for its hospitality. I am confident that this event will open new perspectives and result in a memorable mind and soul enriching interprofessional and interpersonal exchange.
It is my great pleasure to invite you to share your expert opinions and perspectives and participate in this event.
