The meeting covers a broad range of topics including current issues, general paediatric neurosurgery subjects and cases of rare, interesting or developing conditions. The meeting has been taught by a very distinguished faculty from across the UK and Europe including surgeons, radiologists, physicians, academic professors and biomedical engineers.
