2nd Annual Congress of Lateral Skull Base Surgery
Event Date:Friday, May 10, 2019 (All day) to Saturday, May 11, 2019 (All day)
About the Event:
The temporal bone constitutes one of the most anatomically complex locations in the human body. For numerous disorders relevant to neurosurgeons and otolaryngologists, the lateral skull base presents a considerable hurdle when planning surgical approaches. For this reason, a comprehensive knowledge of the complex three dimensional anatomy of this region is vital for surgical residents and fellows in training.
The principle aim of the Annual Lateral Skull Base Congress is to provide comprehensive, hands-on training for the safe and efficient completion of lateral skull base approaches involving the temporal bone. After a successful inaugural session in May 2018, the second annual congress is being opened to a national audience of senior neurosurgical residents, neurosurgical skull base fellows, and neurotology fellows. Attendees will benefit from a timely lecture series by Barrow experts, world-class cadaveric dissections on preserved whole heads, use of clinical grade operative microscopes, and direct mentorship from board-certified skull base surgeons.
