Inspire. Educate. Rehabilitate.
NeuroCon is an advanced-practitioner neurosurgery conference hosted by Goodman Campbell designed to:
- Introduce you to various surgeries and procedures offered by our neurosurgeons, interventional neuroradiologists and interventional pain management team and APP staff.
- Provide an opportunity to ask questions directly.
- Create a partnership and integrate as a team to provide superior patient care and rehabilitation.
A segment is dedicated to a patient guest speaker who offers insight into their perspective of the surgery and recovery process.
Following the last presentation each day, there will be a networking event designed to meet and mingle with attendees and speakers.

“I, as well as many of my co-workers/peers, had the honor of attending Goodman Campbell’s 1st Annual Advanced Practitioner Symposium last year. It was a dynamic and intellectually energizing event. The world-class faculty/speakers, diverse backgrounds and topics were amazing. I was able to meet and network with speakers throughout and after the event. I strongly recommend this event to all advanced practitioners. I will definitely be attending this year’s event.”– Andrew Greenshner, MPT
“The symposium was very insightful and educational in many aspects. It offered a wide variety of presentations, several of which were applicable to my treatment setting. The event was well organized and engaging. I even enjoyed the time between presentations to interact with physicians, vendors and other healthcare professionals attending the event. It was a great opportunity to learn evaluation techniques and treatment options available to patients. I will definitely attend next year!”– Emily Wogtech, DPT
“I found the symposium to be a great review of the SI joint provocation tests as some interesting new information of the use of nerve glides. I used them occasionally and likely not to their full potential, but since the symposium, I have been incorporating them more frequently and more effectively. The event was very well organized, and it was interesting and eye-opening to see SI joint dysfunction from the perspective of radiologists, surgeons and nurse practitioners.”– Ben Hannan, DPT
