Dear Friends & Colleagues, 

As President of the European Society for Pediatric Neurosurgery it gives me a great pleasure to welcome you to our family. 

In the 51st year of our Society’s founding, we continue to be inspired by the passion and commitment we see in the pediatric neurosurgery community where we all work on behalf of children and their families to find solutions for some of the world’s most challenging health issues. All of us in ESPN, from the founders to the newest members, are dedicated in promoting the health of children in Europe and throughout the world by encouraging the ethical transmission and exchange of scientific information and techniques related to Pediatric Neurosurgery.

To serve our goals, we are constantly working on several educational initiatives in order to enhance lifelong learning and create learning opportunities for all neurosurgeons interested in Pediatric Neurosurgery, trainees and trained. 

Plans are progressing for the 27th ESPN Biennial Congress, which will take place in Athens, Greece, from 3 to 6 May, 2020. We hope you will join us. It will be a memorable experience in all aspects, scientific and social. 

In the meantime, do stay in touch with us - via Facebook, or drop us an email

With sincere regards,

Spyros Sgouros
ESPN President
