  • The CNS has a rich legacy of volunteerism, with more than 100 volunteer neurosurgeons serving on the Executive Committee and Standing Committees each year. By engaging young neurosurgeons in committee work and projects, the CNS cultivates a community of neurosurgeon leaders and delivers exceptional value to our members. The bylaws govern how our volunteers operate in their roles.


    The Congress of Neurological Surgeons exists to enhance health and improve lives through the advancement of education and scientific exchange.
