Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.
Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.
The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is be well informed about the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads. Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands or using an alcohol based rub frequently and not touching your face.
The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, so it’s important that you also practice respiratory etiquette (for example, by coughing into a flexed elbow).
At this time, there are no specific vaccines or treatments for COVID-19. However, there are many ongoing clinical trials evaluating potential treatments. WHO will continue to provide updated information as soon as clinical findings become available.
Coronavirus disease spreads primarily through contact with an infected person when they cough or sneeze. It also spreads when a person touches a surface or object that has the virus on it, then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth.
Stay informed. Stay Safe
Welcome to the official website of Neurosurgeons Society of Nepal. NESON has been actively involved in academic activities like organizing conferences, CMEs since its establishment. As its first venture, NESON organized 5th South Asian Neurosurgical Congress (SANC) on March 11-13, 2012 in Kathmandu with the theme of “Neurosurgery: the South Asian Perspective”. The conference was a grand success with active participation by national and international delegates. Other major international conferences organized/co-organized by NESON are 6th ACNS Educational Course on Feb 10-12, 2015 in Chitwan, 1st Nepal international course on neuro-endoscopic surgery on March 23-25, 2015, AASNS/NESON trauma workshop on October 14-15, 2015 in Chitwan, 3rd NESON and 4th Nepal-Japan Neurosurgery Conference (combined meeting) on Oct 29-Nov 1, 2015 in Kathmandu. All these conferences were successfully conducted with participation of neurosurgeons, neurologists, other medical and paramedical personnel related to neurosciences from Nepal and abroad.
Besides the international conferences, NESON has been organizing monthly CMEs at national level, hosted in turn by institutes with neurosurgical services in Nepal. The CME programs have been very effective as a platform for sharing and communication among the neurosurgeons of Nepal and also provide opportunities for young neurosurgeons to enhance their knowledge and skills.
The first executive committee of NESON served from 2008-2010 with Prof. Upendra P Devkota as the founding president, followed by Prof. Pawan K Sultania (2010-2012), Dr. Basant Pant (2013-2015), Prof. Gopal Raman Sharma (2015-2017) Prof. Mohan Raj Sharma (2017-2019) and Currently Prof. Krishna Sharma (2019-2021). NESON has its official journal “Nepal Journal of Neuroscience” (http://neuroscience.org.np/neuro/) which is published biannually with the paper contributions from both Nepal and abroad in the field of neurosciences.
