4TH ANNUAL ONE SPINE FELLOWS & RESIDENTS COURSE
AUGUST 16-18, 2013
The ONE Spine Course is specifically designed for orthopedice fellows and senior neurosurgical residents who are going to practice spinal surgery. The course will cover the latest advances in complex spinal disorders such as minimally invasive techniques, trauma, deformity, tumors, infection, imaging as well as radiosurgery. We will also cover topics such as practice management, coding, and medical legal topics related to the practice of spinal surgery. The main objectives of the course are to bring orthopedic surgeons and neurological surgeons in training together to advance the art and science of modern spinal care.
The course covers the pathophysiology of subaxial cervical spine trauma; management of spinal cord injury, occipital cervical spine anatomy and pathophysiology, subaxial cervical spine anatomy, spinal cord monitoring advances, thoracic stabilization techniques and anatomy; cervicothoracic anatomy; management of thoracolumbar spine trauma; understanding the biological processes of arthrodesis; lateral approaches to the spine; posterior deformity correction; sacral and pelvic fixation; management of spinal tumors; understanding neuromonitoring changes; lumbar stabilization techniques; and anterior correction techniques and biomechanics of spine stabilization.
In addition to didactic sessesions, this uniques program incorporates handds-on cadaveric training in the Seattle Science Foundation Bioskills lab, case-based teaching that emphasizes faculty-fellow interactions. Since the transition into any fellowship can often be challenging for both trainee and mentor, we hope this course provides a useful starting point for this important phase of training.
