This unique 4-day dissection-centered course forces on mastering some of the most complex approaches in neurosurgery including the pterional, fronto-orbitozygomatic, trans- and pericavernous, endoscopic transnasal transsphenoidal, subtemporal, middle fossa, anterior and posterior transpetrosal, retrosigmoid, far lateral, lateral cervical, occipital transtentorial, supracerebellar infratentorial, and the interhemispheric transcallosal. Much of the material is presented in an immersive 3D format in Depuy Synthes’ facility in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
The objective of this surgical course is to improve patient care. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Understand and expose sellar and perisellar anatomy and anterior circulation

- Describe cavernous sinus anatomy and surgical exposure
- Complete endoscopic transnasal transsphenoidal exposure
- Surgically access the basal cistern via opening of the sylvian fissure
- Complete a subtemporal approach and access the upper basilar region
- Navigate the lateral cerebellopontine angle and its neurovascular complexes
- Identify temporal bone anatomy and transpetrosal surgical approaches
