September 11 – 13, 2020  &  September 18 – 20, 2020

The Rhoton Society was founded in 2018 to honor the life and legacy of legendary neurosurgeon Albert L. Rhoton Jr., M.D. and to “keep working” to ensure that the field of microneurosurgical anatomy is embraced by the next generation of neurosurgeons: “We study microsurgical anatomy to make what is a delicate, fateful, awesome experience for our patients, more accurate, gentle, and safe.”

The topic of the meeting is Tradition & Innovation, reflecting the importance of adhering to the classic principles of microneurosurgery and at the same time encouraging advancement and progress in our field.

This virtual and global meeting is now structured in 9 sessions with different topics related to skull base, cerebrovascular and complex brain anatomy and surgery. These 9 sessions are designed to cover all geographic time zones -4 Pacific, 4 Atlantic and 1 Middle East - along 2 consecutive weekends and will feature over 50 world renown neurosurgeons and experts with recognized expertise in the field of surgical neuroanatomy.

Webinar: Dr. Manish Aghi “Indications for Surgery for Prolactinomas”

 

Presented by

Manish AghiManish Aghi, MD, PhD, MAS

Professor, Neurological Surgery
UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences

 

 

 

Learning objectives:

  1. To understand typical symptoms of prolactinomas in males and females.
  2. To understand patient and tumor-specific indications for surgery as opposed to medical management for prolactinomas
  3. To understand the durability of biochemical remission achieved with surgery for prolactinomas

Dr Aghi is a neurosurgeon and scientist at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). He completed his MD-PhD degrees through the MSTP program at Harvard Medical School, followed by neurological surgery residency and postdoctoral training at Massachusetts General Hospital. He is currently faculty in the department of neurological surgery and graduate division of biomedical sciences, as well as a principal investigator in the Brain Tumor Research Center at UCSF. His clinical practice is focused on the surgical management of brain and skull base tumors, with special emphasis on intraoperative brain mapping for glioma surgery, pituitary tumor surgery, and minimally invasive endoscopic skull base surgery.
