News & Events
Each year, UTHealth Neurosciences hosts a variety of events for medical professionals, past patients and others interested in learning more about neurological health issues. These educational events bring together experts in the areas of neurosurgery, neurology, neuro-oncology, neuro-critical care, neurotrauma and nursing to present and discuss current topics in the field. From our annual Yatsu Day Symposium and Neuro ICU Symposium to our online webinars and in-person support groups, UTHealth Medical School partners are helping educate patients and medical professionals, promoting continued innovation in neuroscience care.

Houston Neuroendovascular Surgery Club
The Houston Neuroendovascular Surgery Club (HNESC) hosts multidisciplinary meetings jointly provided by UTHealth Neurosciences. The HNESC meetings gather local experts in Neuroendovascular Surgery, from various specialties including Neurosurgery, Neurology and Radiology, in an open forum for the presentation, discussion, and analysis of interesting neurovascular and interventional cases. HNESC meetings are case-driven. We expect to receive case submissions of which the most interesting will be selected for oral presentation.
