Across the globe, full endoscopic spinal surgery techniques are rapidly advancing the care of the spine patient. ISASS is pleased to announce a CME accredited Basic and Advanced Endoscopic Spine Surgery course at ISASS15 on Friday April 17, 2015 which will highlight:
- Advantages of the Full Endoscopic Approach
- Indications/Patient Selection Techniques
- Avoiding Surgical Failure and Complications
The course will describe fundamental techniques that can augment both the new and experienced endoscopic and non endoscopic spinal surgeon's overall knowledge and technical skills. Learn how to directly treat the so called "difficult to reach" foraminal, lateral, multi-focal, and or recurrent disc herniations under direct endoscopic visualization with the least invasive approach with real time intra-operative patient confirmation. Advanced foraminoplasty techniques will also be outlined as well as endoscopic treatment of the pathoanatomy of pain generators in the outpatient setting.
This course invites residents, fellows, and attending level spinal surgeons to join the faculty in a 3 hour didactic learning symposium with a post course coffee and tea chairmen’s reception with the internationally renowned faculty. The complete course schedule is available below for your review and is also available in the ISASS15 Scientific Program.
