Advanced Training in Open and Endoscopic Neurosurgery
Bringing together skill sets from neurosurgery and otolaryngology, this comprehensive two-day course offers a unique opportunity to collaborate and learn complex surgical techniques from some of the top experts in the field of skull base pathologies, and to take advantage of the leading-edge technologies and cadaver dissection available in our lab.
The Skull Base Lab team instructs via didactic presentation, 3D and virtual reality (VR) anatomy demonstration, and guided cadaveric dissection. Participating surgeons get hands-on dissection experience using specimens to practice several complex approaches in both open and endoscopic cranial base surgery.
June 3 - 4, 2022 Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Review the surgical approaches (open and endoscopic) for complex, skull base pathologies.
Recognize the advantages of a team-based approach for managing pre-, peri- and postoperative skull base pathologies.
Demonstrate proficient endoscopic instrument handling and performing standard open skull base approaches.
Course directors: James P. Chandler, MD, and Robert C. Kern, MD
