What makes an outstanding neurosurgeon? Our Columbia neurosurgeons are outstanding for a number of reasons, including ongoing education, commitment to their patients, ability to achieve the best possible outcomes, and collaboration with other doctors and medical practitioners.

There is one more element that makes an outstanding neurosurgeon: mentorship. Columbia doctors have a long tradition of working with medical students, residents, and newer neurosurgeons to encourage and support them in their training.

“Mentorship: Service, Education, Progress” was the theme of this year’s annual meeting of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS), where Columbia neurosurgeon Dr. Sean Lavine spoke at the Section on Cerebrovascular Surgery.

Dr. Lavine appeared at CNS this year in his new position as Chairman of the Joint Cerebrovascular Section of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons/Congress of Neurological Surgeons (AANS/CNS). He was elected to the chairmanship in 2014 and began his term in office at the beginning of this academic year.

As the Chairman of the Joint Cerebrovascular Section, Dr. Lavine had the honor of choosing and introducing this year’s Drake Lecturer for the section: Dr. Neil Martin, Professor and Chair of the Department of Neurosurgery at UCLA. Dr. Martin spoke about “progress”, one of the mentorship themes, focusing on innovations in intracerebral hemorrhage care.
