This two day course will introduce anatomic approaches to the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine as well as surgical indications, principles, techniques, and skills.
Panel discussions, lectures and case presentations will provide the background for extensive hands-on cadaver sessions where participants will have the opportunity to practice these techniques with faculty who are considered experts in their fields.
Attendees will have the unique opportunity to learn about surgical approaches in the treatment of spinal disorders. The focus of this educational experience will be to provide the fundamental knowledge and skills necessary in order to benefit the most from spinal fellowship training.
