The Society (European Society of Minimally Invasive Neurological Therapy) and its Foundation (European Foundation of Minimally Invasive Neurological Therapy) have been established in order to promote the benefits of minimally invasive neurological therapies in Europe through education, training and support for high quality scientific research.
ESMINT encourages and supports medical practitioners and scientists working to develop and improve minimally invasive methods for the treatment of neurological diseases. These methods will naturally evolve and currently involve the use of image guidance and medical devices such as endovascular catheters to perform treatments with minimum associated trauma.
The Society and Foundation promote the safe application of such techniques and their practice by suitably trained and competent practitioners throughout Europe. ESMINT encourages the setting of international standards for practice and research and encourages their use and appropriate implementation.
The Society (ESMINT) consists of individuals and groups of members working or training in geographical Europe in the field of minimally invasive neurological therapy. The members will determine the organisational structure of the Society and they will be expected to aspire to the highest standards of ethical and scientific medical practice.
