Hands-on Course:Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Tuesday, October 11, 7:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.

The Section on Minimally Invasive Procedures Spine Surgery Lab provides attendees with exposure to some of the newest techniques and technologies in minimally invasive spine surgery. The course begins with a 1-hour didactic session to provide a brief overview of the procedures: endoscopic lumbar spine, MIS TLIF with expandable implants and enabling technologies, lateral interbody fusion techniques, and sacroiliac fusion. This is followed by 4 hours of demonstration and instruction at 10 surgical cadaver stations. Expert surgeons will demonstrate the procedures, provide tailored hands-on instruction and answer participants’ questions. This lab is high yield for those who are interested in these minimally invasive techniques or want to improve on their current knowledge base. LEARN MORE AND REGISTER.

Hands-on Course: Getting the Best Outcomes from Robotics and Navigation
Tuesday, October 11, 1:00–6:00 p.m.

Faculty will explore the fundamental principles of computer-assisted surgery to ensure optimal accuracy during robotic and navigated spine surgery, review similarities and differences between the current robotics platforms and navigation. Attendees will practice deformity, degenerative and minimally invasive techniques to optimize efficiency while achieving consistently high accuracy in robotic and navigated surgery.
