Surgical Approaches to the Skull Base: A Hands-on Cadaver Workshop with 3D Virtual Reality

June 11 — June 13

New York, USA

More Information

This unique hands-on course is conducted four times a year at Weill Cornell’s state-of-the-art Surgical Innovations Laboratory. Participating surgeons work at 3-D interactive cadaver workstations, where they watch cadaveric dissections and review surgical anatomy — all in 3D — before and during their own dissection.The combination of the 3-D virtual reality environment and the cadaveric hands-on dissection affords surgeons excellent preoperative training and rehearsal of current, complex approaches in cranial base surgery. (Please note that this is NOT a CME event.)

Course Objectives

The objective of this surgical course is to improve patient care. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify orbital anatomy and orbito-zygomatic osteotomies
  • Describe cavernous sinus anatomy and surgical exposure
  • Describe and better understand cerebello-pontine anatomy
  • Review jugular foramen anatomy and surgical exposure
  • Identify temporal bone anatomy and specify transpetrosal surgical approaches
