Open Lumbar and Posterior Cervical Approaches

DESCRIPTION

This educational program covers the treatment of degenerative conditions in the posterior cervical and lumbar spine. It focuses on the following open access approaches:

  • Posterior cervical approach
  • Anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF)
  • Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF)

During plenary and interactive sessions, the participants will discuss patient selection and treatment options. Demonstrations of the surgical techniques will be performed during the anatomical workshop. Attendees will get the opportunity to practice all presented techniques in collaboration with experts.
