For people who specialize in cerebrovascular disease (diseases of blood flow in the brain), the AANS/CNS* Joint Cerebrovascular Section is a big deal.
The “Joint CV Section” unites neurosurgeons, other physicians, and researchers from around the globe. Its mission is to advance the diagnosis and management of cerebrovascular disease.
The following year, he began an eight-year term as senior advisor to the group. He will hold that role until 2020.
Asked about the position, Dr. Lavine says,
“I have been fortunate to begin my term as the Chairman of the Joint Cerebrovascular Section at a very important time. Several landmark studies have been published in the last few months that confirm the success of endovascular techniques for patients who have suffered a stroke. They show an improvement in patients’ lives after our minimally invasive treatment of blood clots in brain blood vessels. They prove that stroke programs are necessary and it is our role in the CV Section to help patients, physicians, hospitals and policy makers understand that access to properly trained physicians is an absolute necessity.”
