In an effort to further advance pediatric neurosurgery and scientific collaboration between members, ISPN has now started endorsed research activities, and the creation of focused clinical/scientific interest groups.
Pediatric Epilepsy Surgery Interest Group
The first ISPN endorsed group will be on pediatric epilepsy surgery – the Pediatric Epilepsy Surgery Interest Group (PESIG). This group is driven by Jonathan Roth & Shlomi Constantini.
The roles of this interest group are:
- To unite pediatric neurosurgeons from around the world, who treat children with epilepsy.
- Share knowledge between members.
- Collect ideas for study collaborations from the interest group.
- Initiate focused studies based on these ideas.
The PESIG will also collaborate with other groups focusing on similar topics.
The PESIG will serve as a platform for performing various scientific/clinical projects, which often focus on relatively rare conditions.
We invite neurosurgeons globally who treat children with epilepsy to take part in this important effort!
