Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to introduce the VI. Neurosurgical Endoscopy course program to you.

The use of neuroendoscopy has increased significantly in our neurosurgical practice and 3rd ventriculostomy has become the technique of choice in a significant number of patients with hydrocephalus. Therefore, every neurosurgeon should be familiar with this procedure.

The use of neuroendoscopy has been introduced in most fields of neurosurgery. Nowadays the treatment of different types of cysts, skull base tumors, spinal pathologies and even early cases of craniosynostosis can be done with endoscopic methods.

This workshop will provide a forum for neurosurgeons to discuss the most recent knowledge regarding neurosurgical endoscopy. Detailed anatomy, different indications, short and long term results will be extensively reviewed.

Carefully selected panel of expert speakers will provide the participants with an exceptional educational experience.

Following the course, participants should have the expertise to discuss the endoscopic techniques in intraventricular, endonasal and spinal pathologies.

We hope that you will be able to join us during 11-12 November, 2015.
We look forward to seeing you in İstanbul, Turkey.

Yours
Prof. M. Memet Özek
