South Africa: IFNE 8th World Congress of Neurosurgery

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join us in Cape Town for the 8th IFNE World Congress of Neuroendoscopy.

This scientific gathering will offer a comprehensive, relevant and state-of the art program, with a focus on technical advances and innovative thinking, including hands-on workshops run by internationally renowned endoscopic surgeons. Neuroendoscopy and endoscopic assisted surgery is an expanding and exciting surgical field, which is as relevant in Africa as it is in any other part of the world.

Cape Town  regularly features in the world’s most desired places to visit, due to its  astounding natural beauty, superb infrastructure and incredibly friendly people . We encourage you explore the wonder of Table mountain, the sobering Winelands, mesmerizing Peninsula, the Garden Route or any of the magnificent safari options on offer. So be sure to add a few extra days to your visit to share in these once in a lifetime experiences.

Let us share ideas and insights as we strengthen international friendships and build new collaborations so we can continue to grow this inspiring field of surgery. This will be a monumental event to stimulate novel ideas and the development of strong scientific relationships across the globe.

Please join us to make this gathering of the global endoscopic community on the African continent the most memorable one thus far.
