Overview

The UCSF Pediatric and Adult Spine Surgery Course is a three-and-a-half day event emphasizing pioneering trends in pediatric and adult spinal surgery. This course is designed to be interactive with didactic lectures given by leaders in the spine community as well as a hands-on bioskills lab. Participants will review and practice surgical principles and techniques in the treatment of complex spinal disorders. Expert lecturers will describe the state-of-the-art treatment for a variety of Pediatric and Adult Spinal Disorders. Interactive case presentations will allow learners to apply knowledge to improve decision making for complex spine pathology.

Residents, fellows, and surgeons wanting to broaden their hands-on experience will have the opportunity to improve skills in evaluating, case planning, and performing techniques to address various pediatric and adult spine pathologies.

TARGET AUDIENCE
Orthopaedic and Neurosurgeons as well as other physcians, nurses, trainees, advanced care providers, researchers and other clinical staff caring for pediatric and/or adult spine patients.

Objectives

Objectives should be based on learning needs described above and/or the desired outcomes described below.

  • Understand the indications, applications and surgical techniques for posterior column osteotomies, interbody fusion techniques, transpedicular osteotomy, and corpectomy techniques for spinal reconstruction.
  • Interpret and apply current, best available evidence to assess sagittal alignment in the adult and pediatric deformity patient.  
  • Understand the options for interbody fixation and fusion, and techniques to achieve optimal arthrodesis.
  • Demonstrate understanding of the appropriate application of “minimally invasive” surgical techniques.
  • Evaluate and treat pain related to spinal disorders in a cost-effective and reliable manner based on recently published guidelines.
  • Understand appropriate indications for surgery to treat various spinal pathology including degenerative disorders, spinal deformities, and tumors and deploy suitable surgical approaches to achieve goals of care.
  • Evaluate and treat lumbar degenerative disease and deformity in a cost-effective manner based on an evidence based approach and understand how to mitigate morbidity and risk
  • Avoid perioperative complications by identifying risk factors that may predispose individuals to perioperative morbidity. Determine modifiable risk factors and strategies for effective optimization.
  • Diagnose spinal instability related to spinal tumors and formulate surgical treatment plans to address neurological deficits, pain, and instability in spine oncology patients based on published guidelines.
  • Compare techniques and outcomes of procedures involving the cervical, thoracic, lumbar spine disorders and spinal tumors.
  • Gain experience in the anatomical and technical subtleties of complex cervical, thoracic, and lumbar surgical procedures in a hands-on proctored cadaver lab experience with state of the art instruments and technology available to the participant. 
  • Understand the subtleties of patient selection for various procedures to optimize efficacy and safety in access to and instrumentation of all areas of the spine in both adult and pediatric patients.
  • Correlate radiographic findings to surgical anatomy as they pertain to the approach and techniques for minimizing complications
  • Refine and optimize preoperative and operative treatment planning for adult and pediatric patients
