Thursday, 18 May 2023 8:00 AM - Saturday, 20 May 2023 6:30 PM EDT

Weill Cornell Medicine, 1300 York Avenue, New York, NY, 10065, United States.

This unique 3-day dissection-centered course focuses on mastering some of the most common workhorse approaches in neurosurgery including the pterional, supraorbital, subtemporal, retrosigmoid, midline suboccipital, and interhemispheric transcallosal. All material is presented in an immersive 3D format in Weill Cornell’s state-of-the-art Neurosurgical Innovations and Training Center. Participating surgeons work at 3-D interactive cadaver workstations, where they watch cadaveric dissections and review surgical anatomy—all in 3D—before and during their own dissection. The combination of the 3-D environment and the cadaveric hands-on dissection affords surgeons excellent preoperative training and rehearsal of commonly used neurosurgical approaches.

Course Objectives
The objective of this surgical course is to improve patient care. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

    • Understand and expose sellar and perisellar anatomy and anterior circulation
    • Surgically access the basal cistern via opening of the sylvian fissure
    • Complete a subtemporal approach and access the upper basilar region
    • Navigate the lateral cerebellopontine angle and its neurovascular complexes
    • Understand anatomy and surgical corridors to the third ventricles
