DEAR COLLEAGUES!

It is my pleasure to cordially invite you to participate in the International Neurosurgical Forum, which will take place on July 3-5, 2018 in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, at the Rixos President Astana.

Neurosurgery of Kazakhstan has a long history, but we have made a big leap in our development in the last 10 years. There were introduced a large number of new technologies and were formed and developed certain directions of the neurosurgical service. We held a great number of international congresses and conferences. Our international relations become strengthened. And reaffirming our commitment to the development of international relations, we would like to integrate into the educational and scientific neurosurgical practice. It will be the main mission of our Forum.

We sincerely invite all our friends and colleagues to share their experience and to be guests of the International Neurosurgical Forum.

I sincerely hope that during the Forum you will learn a lot of new things and enjoy the trip to Astana - the capital of Kazakhstan! 

We look forward to seeing you in Astana in July 2018!

Sincerely,
Professor Serik Akshulakov,
President of the Kazakh Association of Neurosurgeon
