Message from the Chairs

Dear Colleagues:

As neurosurgeons we are occasionally faced with complex problems of the skull base and occipital cervical junction in our practices.  On Saturday, September 19 and Sunday, September 20, 2015, we will gather some of the leading minds in neurosurgery for two days of candid debate and discussion and hands-on training at the Seattle Science Foundation.  The review of the surgical anatomy will allow us to be better surgeons and understand what is possible in the operating room with complex tumors involving the orbit, middle fossa, and temporal bone. 

This CME-approved course is designed to focus on the surgical treatment of current issues in the field, as well as new surgical advances and techniques in the hands-on cadaver lab.  It’s not only a cranial course, but also a course on how to deal with the occipital cervical junction.  We hope that you will be able to join us in September.
