Welcome to the 33rd Annual Meeting of the North American Skull Base Society.
This year’s theme is “The Skull Base is Flat…”
Inspired by Thomas L Friedman’s (2005) bestselling book, “The World is Flat”, this conference theme parallels the role the NASBS and other skull base societies around the world have played in flattening the field of skull base surgery.
Thirty years ago, the anatomical boundaries dictated by our residency training were the greatest barrier to treating complex tumors located at the base of the skull. The founding members of skull base societies decided to flatten those barriers and established the first cross disciplinary surgical specialty: Skull Base Surgery.
This year’s scientific program includes several innovations such as specialty tracks, a pre-meeting radiosurgery course, special sessions on pediatric skull base surgery and a vestibular schwannoma education day. In honor of our late friend and esteemed skull base surgeon Fred Gentili, we will host a special pituitary education day dedicated to his legacy.
So why attend this event in Atlanta? In-person scientific inquiry enriches the education, innovation, and collaboration of our society. Through your participation in a live audience, lively discussions amongst colleagues can flourish, new collaborations can emerge, and scholars can respectfully submit constructive criticisms in a relaxed atmosphere.
I am confident that our scientific program, social events, and networking opportunities will inspire all of us to go back home and continue to educate, innovate, and collaborate.
I look forward to seeing you all in Atlanta.
