Message from the CSNS Chairperson
Joshua M. Rosenow, MD
I am honored to have been elected Chair of the Council of State Neurosurgical Societies. I look forward to building on the accomplishments of my predecessors who have built the CSNS into a vibrant, responsive organization that continues to strive to ensure that neurosurgeons practice in an environment that allows us to provide the best care possible for our patients.
The 2017 Spring CSNS meeting was a resounding success. There was vigorous debate on the 10 resolutions submitted. After much discussion, the Council passed resolutions to initiate a study of state prescription drug monitoring programs, investigate a "boot camp" course for advanced practice providers, help combat insurance denial of certain surveillance imaging studies, continue the CSNS studies of burnout among residents, and examine the designation "disruptive physician."
