Spinal surgery - a subspecialty of neurosurgery and orthopaedic surgery - requires a good knowledge of anatomy and an understanding of the relationship of various structures related to the spine.
Safety is of utmost priority in spinal surgery and to maintain safety throughout the operative procedure, an in-depth knowledge of the anatomy is essential.
Aimed at ST4 - ST8 Neurosurgical and Orthopaedic Trainees, Spinal Fellows and Junior Consultants (years 1-3), this cadaver course studies the anatomy of approaches, and additionally spinal instrumentation, which should be an integral part of the training. Currently there are no courses in the UK that cater to this need. The highly popular and well regarded ‘Approaches to the Cranial Components’ course is where this course draws inspiration, following regular feedback from delegates for the need to have a course dedicated to the spine.
