Columbia Neurosurgeons Speak at 2013 AANS/CNS Spine Section Meeting
The American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) and the Congress of Neurological Surgeons’ (CNS) Joint Section on Disorders of the Spine and Peripheral Nerves had their 29th Annual Meeting this month in Phoenix, Arizona and three of our Spine Center neurosurgeons took part in the program; Dr. Peter Angevine, Dr. Paul McCormick, and Dr. Michael Kaiser.
This year’s section meeting had a four day scientific program titled, Maximum Impact:Surgeons as Key Advocates in Patient Care. This program included, lectures, research presentations, and symposia with expert faculty from across the United States and internationally. As a special treat, members of this year’s meeting were joined by the Irish Neurosurgery Group and the Irish Spine Society.
Dr. Angevine is Chief of the joint sessions’ Coding and Reimbursement Committee, so in addition to attending lectures and taking part in lively discussions with his peers, he also got some work done at the Annual Executive Committee meeting.
Dr. McCormick and Dr. Kaiser were among the invited faculty at the scientific program. Dr. McCormick was discussant at a session on spinal tumors, and, as former president of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, he also gave a Keynote-Address response.
Dr. Kaiser was a discussant at a session on the lumbar spine, and course director for a symposium titled, Update of Spine Guidelines, where he spoke about Fusion for Axial Back Pain.Posted on Mar 20, 2013 by Department Author
