The Congress Quarterly (cnsq) is the official newsmagazine of the CNS and is designed to reflect the changing nature of neurosurgery and foster discussion about the core being of the neurosurgeon, which is that of leadership, strength, innovation and the relentless pursuit to improve the care and quality of life of patients. Each issue explores a new topic critical to the core being of the neurosurgeon—from the liability crisis and regulatory issues to practice management topics and other issues that are reshaping neurosurgery.
In today’s post we wanted to spotlight the recently released Summer 2013 issue of the Congress Quarterly which focuses on how neurosurgeons are addressing an aging population. This issue features ten articles on this critical subject, including:
