Presidential address

Dear Friends & Colleagues, 

As President of the European Society for Pediatric Neurosurgery it gives me a great pleasure to welcome you to our family. 

In the 51st year of our Society’s founding, we continue to be inspired by the passion and commitment we see in the pediatric neurosurgery community where we all work on behalf of children and their families to find solutions for some of the world’s most challenging health issues. All of us in ESPN, from the founders to the newest members, are dedicated in promoting the health of children in Europe and throughout the world by encouraging the ethical transmission and exchange of scientific information and techniques related to Pediatric Neurosurgery.

Condolences for the loss of our friend and colleague

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the ESPN I would like to express our deep sorrow on the very sad news of James Goodrich untimely loss. He was a great man, a great mentor and teacher to many of us, an inspiration to all of us and a great friend to me personally and to everyone of us who knew him.

He was a greater supporter of ESPN and a teacher to our courses for over 25 years. He was loved by anyone who was fortunate enough to meet him and talk to him.

It is a great loss for the wider Pediatric Neurosurgery Family.

He will be remembered with great affection.

May He Rest In Peace.

Spyros Sgouros
President of the European Society for Pediatric Neurosurgery
