41st ANNUAL
RICHARD LENDE WINTER NEUROSURGERY CONFERENCE
Jointly Sponsored by the AANS

January 30 - February 3, 2015
Cliff Lodge Conference Center
Snowbird, Utah

The Richard Lende Winter Neurosurgery Conference originated during the winter or 1972-1973 when a small group of similarly motivated neurosurgeons met at the Alta Peruvian Lodge and at Snowbird, where papers and ideas were exchanged in an informal meeting. The meeting was obviously well received and plans were laid for future gatherings. The future was clouded however, by the injury of Dr. Richard Lende, then Chairman of Neurosurgery at Albany, who suffered a severe leg fracture requiring hospitalization at the University of Utah Medical Center. After a lengthy stay, he returned to Albany, where he tragically suffered a cardiac arrest and expired while anesthetized for a minor surgical wound revision.

The spirit and intent of the original meeting has been preserved for more than two decades. It is open to Neurosciences only, providing a forum for free exchange of ideas and presentation of innovations in neurological surgery and allied fields. This meeting of research and clinical applications in a relaxed setting has endured the test of time as a popular tribute to the memory of Dr. Richard Lende.

The Richard Lende Winter Neurosurgery Conference is jointly sponsored by the American Association of Neurlogical Surgeons.

This meeting is opened to neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuro-radiologists and health care providers in the neurosciences.

The Richard Lende Winter Neurosurgery Conference is a live presentation, with interactive discussion, case studies and abstract presentations.

DAVID L. KASDON

This and all Lende meetings since 1988 are dedicated to the memory of "Deel", whose untimely passing shocked all of us who were privileged to know and love him. The void, which we feel, cannot be filled, for he was so much a part of the vitality of this unique yearly gathering. His ability to enjoy life, to make work seem like play, is truly the spirit embodied in the Lende meeting.
