Dear Colleagues and Friends,
On behalf of the Organizing Committee (Association for Neurosurgery “Constantin-Arseni” and the Romanian Society of Neurosurgery), it is my great pleasure to invite you to Bucharest for the 46th Congress of the Romanian Society of Neurosurgery and the 25th French Course between 27th-30th of October 2021.
After a long difficult period caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are gratified to be able to meet again in person and we will take all the measures to ensure the health and safety of the participants.
The topics of the Congress will cover the whole field of neurosurgery and will emphasize on the latest advancements in each area.
Bucharest, the capital of Romania, is a city with a rich historical heritage that has many attractions that we hope you will get to visit and enjoy.
We would be delighted and honored to have you as guests, and we hope that together we will make this meeting successful.

Vice-President of the Romanian Society of Neurosurgery
In my capacity as the president elect of the Romanian Society of Neurosurgery, on behalf of this community, of my collaborators and personally I would like to welcome you at this event.
At the same time, allow me to welcome ourselves in what we all hope will be a long and blissful post-pandemic era.
We are honoured and, at the same time, delighted to host the 46th Congress of the Romanian Society of Neurosurgery, in conjunction with the 25th Francophone Neurosurgery Course, in the capital of Romania, Bucharest, a city in which the vast European culture harmoniously blends with the refined echoes of the Orient.
One of the first Romanian neurosurgery centres was established in Bucharest, namely in 1935. The city is currently one of the main neurosurgery centres in our country, with multiple neurosurgery departments, both in the public and private health system.
The city has grown tremendously over the last few years, becoming a veritable multicultural European metropolis with over 3 million inhabitants. From the Palace of the Parliament, the 2nd largest building in the world, to the beautiful Old Centre, to it’s many parks with a great history for the locals, Bucharest has a plethora of beautiful places to visit whether it is for relaxation or business.
It is a great honour for the Romanian Society of Neurosurgery to host our event in Bucharest, a city with a rich history.
May this congress lead to stronger friendships and new international connections within our sacred specialty.
