2nd Annual Spinal Navigation, Emerging Technologies and Systems Integration Course

The 2nd Annual Spinal Navigation, Emerging Technologies and Systems Integration Course is an advanced training course held for orthopaedic and neurosurgeons who treat spinal conditions.  Nationally recognized speakers will focus on provocative topics and in-depth debates regarding spinal navigation and robotics application in spine surgery.  They will also provide hands-on workshops in state-of-the-art lab facilities.  The design is to gain knowledge and experience of the new modalities in spine surgery, addressing boththe guidelines and controversies of the field, as well as attaining hands-on exposure and training in the cadaver lab.  

Topics include:

  • Interpret the cost effectiveness of navigation in case studies
  • Discriminate when and why navigation is needed
  • Indicate when robotic assisted spine surgery is beneficial in spine
  • Indicate the benefits of using a robotics system for surgery
  • Illustrate the appropriateness and application of 7D Surgical
  • Illustrate the possibilities in treatment with pain management
  • Illustrate how human factors play a critical role including training and implementation
  • Preview each lab station and what the technology is that is being highlighted
