American Board of Neurological Surgery
The American Board of Neurological Surgery (ABNS) is the sole examining and certifying organization of neurosurgeons. "A certificate, once granted, is verification of the completion of education, peer review and examination processes."
"The broad aim of The American Board of Neurological Surgery is to encourage the study, improve the practice, elevate the standards and advance the science of neurological surgery and thereby to serve the cause of public health."
American College of Surgeons
Fellowship in the American College of Surgeons is a peer reviewed process requiring certification by a specialty board that is a member of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), review of surgical cases, and peer interviews.
American Association of Neurological Surgeons
The American Association of Neurological Surgeons was initially founded in 1931 as the Harvey Cushing Society. It was later named the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS). It is the oldest of the two primary scientific and educational societies for neurosurgery.
The AANS is dedicated to advancing the specialty of neurological surgery in order to provide the highest quality of neurosurgical care to the public. Fellows of the AANS (FAANS) are board-certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery.
The values of AANS neurosurgeons include Integrity, Leadership, Excellence, and Professionalism. In keeping with these values, the AANS has developed a code of ethics and rules for Neurosurgical Medical/Legal Expert Opinion Services. These are the guiding principles for CNSECR services.
