This unique, hands-on course is conducted at our state-of-the-art Surgical Innovations Laboratory for Skull Base Microneurosurgery. Participating surgeons work at interactive cadaver workstations, where they review 3D surgical anatomy before and during their own dissections. The combination of a 3D, virtual reality environment and hands-on, cadaveric dissection affords surgeons excellent preoperative training and rehearsal of current, complex approaches to cranial base surgery. Upcoming Courses
The objective of our skull base surgical approach course is improved patient care. Upon completion of the course, participants are able to:
- Identify orbital anatomy and orbito-zygomatic osteotomies.
- Describe cavernous sinus anatomy and surgical exposure.
- Understand cerebellopontine anatomy.
- Review jugular foramen anatomy and surgical exposure.
- Identify temporal bone anatomy and specify transpetrosal surgical approaches.
Practicing neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists, fellows and residents in training
Courses are held twice each year (in April and December).
