The 2019 CNS Annual Meeting Exhibit Hall
Authors: Daniel J. Hoh, MD
The 2019 Congress of Neurological Surgeons Annual Meeting, October 19 – 23 in San Francisco, California is an excellent opportunity to learn about exciting new research, discuss current clinical practice guidelines, hear from insightful invited guest speakers, and network with new and old colleagues. In addition, the Annual Meeting is a unique venue to explore state-of-the-art technology to better enhance your surgical practice. Neurosurgeons consistently remain at the forefront of developing new surgical techniques and devices from intraoperative navigation, deep brain stimulation, surgical robotics, and precision endoscope and exoscopes for operative visualization. That same curiosity and creativity are what make the CNS Exhibit Hall a fantastic display of the latest in neurosurgical innovation.
Unlike a conventional showroom, the CNS Exhibit Hall is a truly immersive and interactive experience. Live surgery is broadcast daily from key thought leaders as they take you through complex procedures in real time. These surgeries often integrate multiple advanced technologies, with invited faculty showing how these devices can level the playing field when tackling the most challenging cases. They offer a complementary learning experience to the general scientific sessions, as they demonstrate direct application of the latest neurosurgery advances in real live surgery.
Also in the exhibit hall, educational update sessions are rapid- fire, 10-minute, case-based talks highlighting a novel neurosurgical device over coffee with your peers. Sponsored mid-day symposia are an opportunity to sit down over catered lunch for an invited lecture, and ask-the-expert panel discussion on surgical nuances and pearls. Throughout the day, corporate displays and in-booth presentations allow attendees to explore a variety of devices through interactive face-to-face demonstrations. For those looking for more practical training, mobile cadaver labs with hands-on instruction are accessible directly from the convention center. Last, the CNS Xperience lounge is an inviting popular area for friends and colleagues to link up, meet invited guests for book signings and network with industry partners.
We look forward to joining you at the Congress of Neurological Surgeons Annual Meeting and exhibit hall this October 2019 in San Francisco.
