Description

In this course we will train the participants on complex cervical problems providing an in-depth hands on training incl. small group practical exercises on artificial bones, case discussions, lectures and debates (the good-the bad-the ugly session).

WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND THIS COURSE AND HOW IT COULD BENEFIT YOUR DAILY PRACTICE

Complex cervical pathologies continue to persist despite advances in preventative healthcare. Management of these issues can be challenging and complicated. With detailed understanding of anatomy, operative techniques, and how to utilize available tools, successful and safe outcomes can be achieved.

WHAT THIS COURSE OFFERS

This three-day course will explore complex cervical pathologies from the occipital-cervical junction to the cervico-thoracic junction. Case-based discussions will explore aspects of assessment, planning, surgical techniques, and complication management. Experienced AO spine surgeons from each of the major region will serve as facilitators for the group discussions, which will be further augmented with hands-on skills labs to practice and implement surgical techniques.
