Register Now View Agenda

This comprehensive hands-on course, developed in association with the NASS Section on Spine Oncology, will present the latest advances in surgical, medical and radiation oncology as they relate to spinal tumors. The unique surgical and oncologic challenges of treating these tumors are benefitted by multidisciplinary communication and collaboration, which will be thoroughly addressed by expert faculty. Techniques, treatments, therapies, complications, risks and patient communications will be covered in-depth.

The course moves away from the traditional format of didactic lectures at surgical courses, by providing interactive, case-based discussions led by expert faculty.

Surgeons will have ample time to practice advanced surgical techniques for stabilization and reconstruction during a hands-on practical lab.

Unable to attend in person? Register to view the course live in real-time virtually on April 26-27 or learn OnDemand later at your own space (recordings included). In-person attendees will also have access to OnDemand recordings. For more details on registration, please see below.
