Course Description

This course is designed for the general practicing neurosurgeon who wishes to introduce or expand the use of minimally invasive technologies and approaches to their cranial practice.

The 2-day intensive course will include a combination of lectures, case-based discussions, and cadaver dissections. Topics covered will include:

  • Endoscopic evacuation of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH)
  • Stereotactic navigation and exoscopic techniques for subcortical surgery
