This two-day course is designed for 5th and 6th year neurosurgery residents who seek an intensive, hands-on course in the surgical management of pathologies of the craniocervical junction.
Pathologies to be addressed include vascular diseases, tumors, deformities and trauma. Anatomical considerations, patient indications for intervention, decision-making, and surgical approaches and techniques will be discussed. Faculty will demonstrate repair, fixation and reconstruction techniques using 3-D imaging, and state-of-the-art devices and instrumentation.
