Welcome to the California Association of Neurological Surgeons

Our Mission: To Advocate for the Practice of California Neurosurgery Benefiting our Patients and Profession.

Welcome to the California Association of Neurological Surgeons

The recent violence our country is experiencing is very disturbing and has the potential to inflict harm requiring California neurosurgeons to respond. The CANS Board has discussed the issue(s) and concerns over the last 36 hours.  We recognize that national medical societies such as the American College of Surgeons (ACS) [https://www.facs.org/about-acs/responses/violence] and the American Medical Association (AMA) [https://www.ama-assn.org/about/leadership/police-brutality-must-stop] have stepped forward to take an official position during this time.  After careful consideration, with unanimous voting board member endorsement and without a dissenting ex officio board member objection, the CANS Board has voted to take, and publicize, a position which closely parallels that of the ACS. Namely - CANS POSITION STATEMENT ON RECENT VIOLENCE. Recent events across the country have significantly impacted us all, particularly California Neurological Surgeons who are members of Black and Brown communities. CANS stands in solidarity against racism, violence, and intolerance. Our mission is to serve all with skill and fidelity, and that extends beyond the operating room. Racism, brutal attacks, and subsequent violence must end. We will help any injured, and we will use our voice in support of the health and safety of every person.  Sincerely, Mark E. Linskey, MD, for the CANS Board of Directors .
