ESSFN Congress in Stockholm

Congress dinner was held at the Wasa Museum and here Monika is with Boston Scientific representatives Sophie Arajou and Yasmine Lafnoune


The 15th ESSFN (European Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery) Congress was held during the last week of September at the Waterfront Congress Center in Stockholm Sweden.

This congress takes place every other year and participants to this congress are neurosurgeons, neurologists and nurses. Executive Director Monika Benson participated and Dystonia Europe had a small booth in the exhibition hall. Unfortunately no other non-profit organisations were there. Many old friends and contacts came to visit the booth to find out about Dystonia Europe activities and got information on the PhysioExerciseHub, the David Marsden Award and the Cervical Dystonia Patient Journey.

The next ESSFN Congress will take place in Budapest, Hungary, end of September 2025.
