The series consists of 3 hands-on dissection courses of which the first one focuses on approaches and procedures to the lumbar spine the second on the cervical spine and the third on the brain and skull base. The emphasis will be set on essential neurosurgical anatomy and the planning of minimally invasive approaches compared to the standard approaches. The training will include lectures, virtual reality training, hands-on training on models and dissection training on cadavers.There will be a maximum of 4 participants per cadaver and each table and station will have an instructor available. X-ray aprons, gloves and surgical gowns will be provided by the lab.Click HERE for more information!10% Discount for one course and 20% with two or more courses for EANS Individual Members!
