Welcome Address


Dear Colleagues,

It is indeed a great pleasure and a true privilege for me to invite you all to our 35th Annual Greek Neurosurgical Congress, which will be held in Kalamata, Greece from 2-5 June, 2022.

Our Society’s annual Congress provides the unique opportunity for continuing neurosurgical education and training through its vivid and interactive sessions. It constitutes an open forum for free and unbiased scientific communication, providing the opportunity for presenting new strategies and surgical techniques for managing neurological pathological entities. Moreover, our traditional refreshing courses provide an excellent stimulus for younger, and a thorough review for more experienced colleagues.

This year’s Congress is characterized by two novel features. Two vibrant and interactive sessions between young and senior neurosurgeons exploring the blending of enthusiasm and experience in the daily neurosurgical practice. The other is a practical workshop dedicated to applied neurophysiology in brain tumor surgery.

Furthermore, our Congress constitutes the ideal environment for networking and establishment of scientific collaborations and professional networking. Our exciting social program guarantees the rewarming of old friendships and the establishment of new ones.

Our host city, Kalamata, represents the traditional Greek hospitality but also a unique cultural and financial growth, and provides the opportunity for an unforgettable long-weekend in Southern Peloponesse.

Looking forward to welcoming you in Kalamata,


Kostas N. Fountas, MD, PhD

President of the Hellenic Neurosurgical Society
