Hands-On Craniosynostosis Course: Advanced Anterior Cranial Vault Remodeling Techniques


Event Date: 

Saturday, December 3, 2016 (All day)

About the Event: 

This unique symposium combines classroom instruction with hands-on practice using state-of-the-art 3D models of actual patient cases. The course will teach pioneering neurosurgical techniques in Advanced Anterior Cranial Vault Remodeling for repair of craniosynostosis.

Neurosurgical and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgical residents will find this course especially useful, but it is appropriate for any neurosurgeon or plastic/reconstructive surgeon wishing to learn the most advanced open and endoscopic techniques.

The symposium will consist of a series of brief lectures, followed by a lab practical involving lifelike craniosynostosis models created using 3D technology. Models are based on actual patient scans. Learn the latest techniques for these complex reconstructive surgeries from experts in Pediatric Neurosurgery and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, including Dr. Mark Souweidane, Dr. Jeffrey Ascherman, and other faculty members.

Please note that this is NOT a CME credit-granting course.
