Dear Colleagues, dear Friends!

Welcome to the Conference on Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery with international participants “ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES FOR IMPROVING PATIENTS’ LIVES” to be held in Kyiv, Ukraine on June 11-13, 2020. The venue will take place in the Hyatt Hotel, located in the heart of city with glorious historical past and full of various cultural events.

In the last decades stereotactic and functional neurosurgery has been considered one of the most important areas of neurosurgery. Leading experts from all over the world will discuss current place of surgery in the management of Epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, Dystonia, Pain and some Psychiatric Disorders. The Conference aims to create favourable opportunities for learning about the most exciting recent achievements in functional and stereotactic neurosurgery. It is considered a modern field of neurosurgery with exceptional technological potential, allowing to improve effectiveness in the management of complex central nervous system diseases.

It is worth mentioning, that one of the first departments of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery in Europe was founded in 1974 in Kyiv, at the Institute of Neurosurgery, and was headed by professor Oleg Laponogov for the following 37 years.

We hope that the Conference on Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery in Kyiv will bring you unforgettable memories and brief you on recent scientific and practical neurosurgical accomplishments. This event should provide an opportunity to meet friends and to establish new contacts in a great atmosphere – you will be able to enjoy Kyiv in early summer, when the city is immersed in greenery and flowers.

We are expecting your active and fruitful cooperation. Looking forward to meeting you next June in Kyiv,
