About this course

Introductory words from the course director

Following the success of the previous year's edition, we have made the decision to re-organize this highly exclusive masterclass focused on intra-cranial surgery. Renowned European surgeons, Bjorn Meij and Franck Forterre, who possess extensive expertise in this field, will be leading this exceptional event.

However, it is imperative to recognize that addressing the topic of intra-cranial surgery without delving into the crucial aspect of peri-operative care would render the discussion incomplete. Bearing this in mind, we have broadened the program to encompass a comprehensive range of subjects in the form of onsite lectures or recorded webinars including diagnostic imaging, anesthesia, intensive care, and adjuvant therapies.
