The Advanced Spine Surgery Level II is designed for surgeons that are skilled at surgery including laminectomies and ventral slot decompression, and wish to expand their surgical repertoire to more technical procedures and spinal stabilizations. The skills taught will be ventriculoperitoneal shuts, various craniotomy procedures, thoracolumbar corpectomy, dorsal cervical decompression, stabilization of thoracic spinal fractures with SOP locking spinal plates, dorsal cervical decompression, cervical stabilization, Atlanto-axial stabilization, foramenotomy for lumbosacral decompression, and SOP stabilization for lumbosacral instabilities. There will be five sessions beginning with theory and detailed step by step description of the procedures followed by a demonstration of the procedure by an instructor on a cadaver. The attendees will then repeat the procedures on cadavers and can repeat the procedures as needed. Instrumentation will include standard surgical instrumentation, specialized spinal instrumentation, high speed burr, drills, and SOP instrumentation and screws.
