This interactive online course will alleviate the fear and concern towards adopting MIS surgery. Starting with the basics, it then proceeds to a series of case presentations by the faculty, discussing 4 common pathologies (lumbar discectomy, lumbar stenosis, spine fracture and spondylolisthesis) traditionally managed with open surgery. Faculty will incorporate the advantages of the procedure and how it benefitted the patient. Also addressed will be strategies to avoid the possible complications for each approach. This course is self-paced and will take up to two hours to complete.
