It is an honor to welcoming you to the 11th Asian Congress of Neurological Surgeons, Surabaya, Indonesia. I am overjoyed to have you all…
The ACNS was started in 1993 along the lines of Dr. Kanno’s dream. We had invited a hundred young Neurosurgeons sponsoring their stay and registration… the dream continues on….. And we promise you that our dream of equality in opportunities for Neurosurgeons from the developing countries is a dream we will keep alive..
Every council needs to have a journal and our official journal, the Asian Journal of Neurosurgery started in 1997. It has come a long way and quality articles from Asia and abroad adorn it these days.. We have a young and dynamic team who are equally adept at learning from the masters and innovating as well…
The ACNS has also been involved with the education of women in Neurosurgery and, as I see the members of AWNA gathered here, I am proud that in a continent like Asia where so many constraints are present for average women, we have a sizeable group in a very difficult branch of surgery…. If you remember, the first woman who scaled Everest was from Asia….
For the next five days, we have a scenario where there are the best teachers available in Asia and we also have eager young Neurosurgeons.. We hope that both interact and I am sure, before long, the masters would sit back in admiration of their wards… and today’s young Neurosurgeons will in turn lead the young neurosurgeons of tomorrow towards betterment of Neurosurgery….This would be my concept of Utopia.. Let’s all, for the next five days forget those lines on the maps dividing us into different countrymen and work as a common force… Let’s do our bit of making this world a better place…
