Dear Colleagues   

On behalf of the organising committee for the Society of Neurosurgeons of South Africa and the local Organising Committee, may I invite you to attend the 26th SNSA Annual Meeting to be held in Umhlanga Rocks, Durban from 3 – 6 August 2017, with the theme “Unity in Diversity”. The meeting will be held at The Coastlands Conference & Hotel which offers onsite cost effective comfortable accommodation for your convenience.

We promise to offer a stimulating meeting with a varied academic programme including pre congress workshops.

On Thursday 3 August there are two workshops planned; Interventional Endovascular Neurosurgery and Endoscopy for Skull Base Procedures.

For this year’s meeting we will be collaborating with the Neurological Society of India. In addition, a number of members of the Society of University Neurosurgeons (SUN) will also be attending. We anticipate therefore an excellent line up of esteemed international and local faculty.

The scientific programme will be prepared by Professor Graham Fieggen and his committee and we would like to encourage as many abstract submissions as possible.

The social programme promises to varied and entertaining with pre and post congress tours on offer for those of you that may have time to take advantage of the wonderful Natal coastline and bush breaks.

Durban and surrounds is a great place to take a break and to share some relaxation time with your colleagues and family.

We look forward to welcoming you all to Umhlanga Rocks, Durban KwaZulu-Natal.

Sameer Nadvi – Congress Chairman
