For the first time since the founding of ONESpine, an advanced course will be held for attending orthopedic and neurosurgeons. Nationally recognized speakers will focus on provocative topics and in-depth debates. They will also provide hands-on workshops in state-of-the-art lab facilities. The design is to focus on the surgical treatment of current issues in the field, as well as provide opportunities to practice new surgical advances and techniques in the hands-on cadaver lab.
Orthopedic and neurological surgeons are committed to the best outcomes for spine patients. Yet differences and divisions remain between the two specialties. The surgeons of ONESpine are focused on building consensus and cooperation between orthopedic and neurological spine surgeons. Given the rapid innovative advancements in the field, there is a tremendous need for continued education. By educating physicians of the new surgical methods, equipment and procedures, the ONESpine Master’s Course will optimize and unify education and research among neurological and orthopedic spine surgeons to improve patient care.
At the conclusion of this course, the participant will provide better patient care through an increased ability to:
- Describe the principle spinal and pelvic alignment parameters and detail the relationship between alignment parameters and preoperative symptoms and postoperative results
- Analyze the classification criteria of the SRS-Schwab Adult Deformity Classification system and how to improve outcomes of adult deformity surgery
- Identify appropriate indications and contraindications for MIS surgical treatment of spinal deformity
- Elucidate strategies to minimize complications with MIS deformity surgery
- Provide a literature estimate on screw malposition rates, as well as an estimate on rates of return to the OR for screw malposition
- Discuss the use of image guidance for percutaneous screw placement
- Discuss the anatomy of the lumbar plexus, review lateral safe zones and address vascular injury
- Describe the location and type of stenosis found
- Develop a plan and execute surgical strategies to successfully treat stenosis
- Examine surgical skills from the paradigm of a performance, discuss variables that cause interference and develop techniques to bring back to the operating room
- Demonstrate competency with the techniques of pedicle and iliac screw placement, osteotomies and vertebral column resection in the treatment of spinal deformity.

Meet Lawrence G. Lenke, M.D.
Dr. Lawrence G. Lenke, the Jerome J. Gilden Distinguished Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Professor of Neurological Surgery, is Chief of Spinal Surgery at Washington University School of Medicine in Saint Louis, Missouri, and his practice is devoted exclusively to the treatment of complex pediatric and adult spinal deformity. Dr. Lenke is also Director of the Complex Spinal Deformity Institute and Fellowship at Washington University and treats patients at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Shriners Hospital for Children.
Dr. Lenke graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Notre Dame and then attended medical school at Northwestern University in Chicago, also graduating with honors. He completed his surgical internship and orthopedic surgical residency at Washington University School of Medicine, where he also completed a pediatric and adult spinal surgery fellowship.
Dr. Lenke has remained at Washington University as an attending spinal surgeon, rising from the ranks of Assistant Professor to the Jerome J. Gilden Distinguished Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery in less than 10 years.
Dr. Lenke is world-renowned for the surgical treatment of pediatric and adult patients with various forms of spinal deformity, with an expertise in the most complex types of cases. Thus, he is a leading authority on such spinal deformities as scoliosis, kyphosis, flatback syndrome, high-grade spondylolisthesis and major truncal imbalances due to various spinal deformities. He is the immediate past president of the Scoliosis Research Society, the oldest and most prestigious spinal society in the world whose singular focus is the advancement of care in patients with spinal deformity. He is also active in the North American Spine Society, the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
