The Department of Neurosurgery residents recently attended the Advances in Brain Tumor Management Conference jointly sponsored by the Columbia University Department of Neurosurgery and the American Association of Surgeons. The Conference was held June 6, 2014 in New York.

Dr. Mark Hadley, UAB neurosurgeon, was one of the presenters at the conference. He spoke on “Perfusion Pressure Management in the Peri-operative Treatment of Spinal Cord Pathology”.

The learning objectives of the conference were:

  1. Recognize CNS malignancies and other neurological diseases.

  2. Understand diagnosis and treatment of brain tumors and other neurological diseases.

  3. Discuss a multidisciplinary approach to treating brain tumors and other neurological diseases.
