Not all neurosurgeons see brain tumors in their practices, and many of those that do, see them only occasionally. When they’re not actively working with brain tumor patients it can be helpful to have refresher courses to keep up to date on the latest in brain tumor research and treatment techniques.
That’s why Dr. Jeffrey Bruce was once again part of the faculty for his popular “Brain Tumor Update” course at the 2015 meeting of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) this fall.
Dr. Bruce started the Brain Tumor Update course in 2003 as a way to help neurosurgeons stay abreast of the most recent information and management options.
Each year this day-long practical course covers the latest research on brain tumors, as well as an overview of current strategies for managing different types of tumors.
The class was an immediate hit in 2003 and continued to have a great turn out year after year. Eventually Dr. Bruce handed over directorship of the course, but he still often makes an appearance as part of the faculty.
Dr. Bruce is the perfect person to keep these neurosurgeons up to date. He is a leading expert in complex tumors of the brain and skull base tumors, and he serves as Co-Director of the Brain Tumor Center, the Bartoli Brain Tumor Research Laboratory, and the Pituitary Tumor Center.
The annual meeting of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons is a premier forum for exploring controversial issues and cutting edge technologies in the field of neurosurgery.
