About this event

  • Date and time Tue 11 Oct 2022 from 5:30pm to 8:15pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Clinical Neurosciences

Historically, surgical access to specific locations within the brain has been limited due to its vast complexity and critical structures which may block the route to the target. However, new options now exist to access these regions without the need for an opening in the scalp or skull.

Attend this event to learn about incisionless brain surgery techniques from the new Clinical Neurosciences President, Mr Jonathan Hyam. He will lecture on the procedure and outcome of stereotactic radiosurgery and MR-guided focused ultrasound, as well as the ever-expanding list of conditions which can be treated using these techniques.

We are offering 20 bursary places at this event for Trainees. Please contact our customer service team to apply by emailing events@rsm.ac.uk.

Attend this event to:

  • Develop familiarity with incisionless brain surgery techniques 
  • Understand which neurological conditions can be treated using incisionless brain surgery 
  • Gain knowledge of specific goals and outcomes of incisionless brain surgery 


The President's prize will be awarded during this meeting for the best oral presentation. Please see the details below to enter.
