For the last 16 years, this intimate 3-day dissection-centered course has focused on complex skull base approaches including the fronto-orbitozygomatic, pericavernous, middle fossa anterior petrosectomy, translabyrinthine, far lateral. All material is presented in an immersive 3D format in Weill Cornell’s state-of-the-art Neurosurgical Innovations and Training Center. 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.

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 orbitozygomatic osteotomies
  • Describe cavernous sinus anatomy and surgical exposure
  • Describe and better understand cerebellopontine anatomy
  • Review jugular foramen anatomy and surgical exposure
  • Identify temporal bone anatomy and specify transpetrosal surgical approaches
