The modern care of patients who suffer from challenging clinical neuroscience problems requires a multidisciplinary team. This course provides neuroscience care team members the latest advances and innovations in complex brain, spinal and peripheral nerve disorders including brain and skull base tumors, neurovascular diseases including complex arteriovenous malformations, spinal disorders including scoliosis, acute stroke and other exciting and important neuroscience frontiers.
Over 200 case presentations and discussions
Skull base, brain and spinal cord tumors
Neurovascular diseases, neurosurgical emergencies and acute stroke
Endoscopic techniques, proton beam and minimally invasive skull base surgery
Scoliosis, spine oncology, and minimally invasive spine surgery
Optional simulation hands-on workshop including bypass and endovascular techniques
Friday evening dinner with special "Innovations in Neuroscience" presentation
