It is my privilege to welcome you to the 46th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Academy of Neurological and Orthopaedic Surgeons. We are gathered here at the Hilton Palacio Del Rio for our annual educational program.
Our conference will provide information on a variety of Neurological, Orthopaedic and Spine related topics and I encourage you to review the information available on the meeting APP to learn all about the various speakers and their presentations. I am delighted that in this year’s program will include a number of speakers from San Antonio and the surrounding area. Joining us from UT San Antonio will be Prof. Cristian Gragnaniello, who will present Modern Management Strategies in Thoraco-Lumbar Trauma on Saturday morning. In addition, invited guest speakers, Drs. Jon-Cecil Walkes from Houston and Steven Cyr from San Antonio will contribute two fascinating lectures on Friday morning.
I am pleased that the International College of Surgeons, as our educational partner, has worked closely with our Scientific Organizing Committee to develop additional programming that is likely to be of interest to all surgical specialties. I encourage every member of the Academy to peruse the program and participate in as many sessions as possible to earn the maximum number of CME credits.
I hope you have a most enjoyable visit to the home of the Alamo during our annual meeting!
