The Association of Extremity Nerve Surgeons (AENS) wants to thank each member for your  support and advancement of nerve treatment. Your involvement is critical to continuing treatment of peripheral nerve pathology.  I am excited to serve as your President for 2014 and welcome any suggestions and research ideas. For those who are interested in advancing nerve treatment – JOIN US!
As a specialty society, AENS has grown to over 150 DPM’s & MD’s with focus on nerve treatment. Advancement and research CANNOT continue without YOU. 2013 was an exciting year as we continued our focus on research and medical missions through the Extremity Nerve Research Foundation. Your dues are the cornerstone for our advancement. AENS tries to build member benefits based on YOUR requests. The below goals are what I pledge to achieve with the help of the AENS Board Of Directors and project committees.  If you are interested in volunteering for any of these projects, please contact myself or info@aens.us.
