Neurosurgeons from NYU Langone Medical Center will present techniques and discuss surgical approaches and applications of technology at the annual meeting of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), held April 9-13, 2011 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.

The Department of Neurosurgery at NYU Langone Medical Center has been recognized as one of the top ten hospitals in the country for neurology and neurosurgery by U.S. News & World Report for the past three years. This year, the department expanded its expertise with the addition of several well-renowned experts.
