Section on Spinal Deformity: Surgical Techniques to Prevent Common Complications and Improve Work Efficiencies in Adult Spinal Deformity Hands-on Course

Boston, MA

Starts: Tue 1:30PM CT (Sep 28, 2021) Ends: Tue 6:00PM CT (Sep 28, 2021) OnDemand

Surgical treatment for adult spinal deformity (ASD) is associated with high risks for perioperative complications. This combined didactic and cadaver course will demonstrate hands-on procedural solutions and supporting literature to avoid and treat coronal malalignment, rod fracture, proximal junctional failure, sagittal malalignment, and use robotic surgery for ASD surgery.

Upon completion of this course, participants should gain strategies to:

Identify risk factors for postoperative coronal malalignment following ASD and demonstrate surgical techniques to correct and prevent coronal malalignment;

Demonstrate the use of supplemental rods to prevent postoperative rod fracture following osteotomies and surgical correction of ASD;

Demonstrate surgical techniques to reduce the incidence of proximal junctional failure following ASD surgery;

Provide overview and demonstrate workflow for robotic surgery in spine deformity surgery;

Demonstrate use of minimally invasive techniques (MIS) to correct sagittal malalignment in ASD.


This course is open to all members and nonmembers physicians.


NASS courses are created to enhance physician understanding of the complexity of performing these procedures only. The course is not designed to certify that attendees are proficient in the procedures taught in the course. NASS strongly advises participants to continue to have proctoring, mentoring and additional experience prior to treating patients.
