The International Society for Pediatric Neurosurgery (ISPN), founded in 1972, seeks to promote the health of children throughout the world by encouraging ethical transmission and exchange of scientific information and techniques related to Pediatric Neurosurgery.
The mission of the ISPN is the promotion of health in our young patients. To support this we give our time, energy and money to support educational activities. Every year we host a scientific meeting somewhere in the world with many physicians and allied health care workers attending. This is an opportunity for us to share with each other advances in the care of children and to plan ISPN sponsored activities that will further the education of care givers for children with neurosurgical illnesses. Our society provides faculty and financial support every year for courses in emerging countries needing education in the treatment of children. The intent of these courses is to provide an overview of the state-of-art in pediatric neurosurgery and thereby inform physicians attending these courses about modern day management of neurosurgical illnesses in children and the expected outcome. Our members supply manuscripts for our professional journal, Child’s Nervous System. We are passionate to further our specialty and the energy for this comes from our love of children and our desire to serve them well.
