An initiative of the AO Foundation, AONeuro was founded in 2013, and has now grown into an independent foundation, Global Neuro. Today, we are focused on advanced professional education with global outreach to approximately 40,000 professionals. By utilizing formal educational curricula and key opinion leaders as faculty, we seek to advance practice, surgical techniques, and outcomes assessments for neurological patients worldwide.
