Dr. Sean Lavine recently returned from a whirlwind week speaking and meeting with neurosurgeons from around the world. They were all gathered in Nashville, Tennessee for back-to-back neurosurgery conferences.
The first was the annual meeting of the Joint Cerebrovascular Section. Dr. Lavine is Chair-Elect of this important group, which is a collaboration between the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) and Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS). The annual meeting brought together an international crowd of neurosurgeons for two days of lectures, presentations, and debates.
At the International Stroke Conference, Dr. Lavine got even busier. First he moderated a session titled “Vascular Malformation Controversies Commonly Encountered in the Office.” The 1.5-hour session included a discussion on managing a patient’s vascular malformation along with pregnancy, seizures, or athletic competition.
Then, Dr. Lavine moderated a tour of a poster session. At these sessions, researchers display poster boards that explain their most important results. Think of a science fair…but instead of middle-schoolers, the presenters are researchers from places like Columbia University. And instead of “Constructing an Electric Circuit,” the projects have names like “Novel Prognostic Scores for Early Prediction of Outcome Following Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage.”
Dr. Lavine led a tour of the poster session for a group of people interested in aneurysm and subarachnoid hemorrhage. At each stop on the tour, a researcher made a short presentation and conducted a Q&A on their research. His tour covered eleven research projects from the U.S., Canada, China and Japan.
Dr. Lavine specializes in problems of the cerebrovascular system, like stroke and aneurysm. When he’s on his home turf, he serves as Clinical Co-Director of Neuroendovascular Services at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, as well as Director of Neurointerventional Services at the Valley Hospital, Ridgewood, NJ.
