About the Event

This unique hands-on course is conducted twice a year at Weill Cornell’s state-of-the-art Surgical Innovations Laboratory. 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 orbito-zygomatic osteotomies
  • Describe cavernous sinus anatomy and surgical exposure
  • Describe and better understand cerebello-pontine anatomy
  • Review jugular foramen anatomy and surgical exposure
  • Identify temporal bone anatomy and specify transpetrosal surgical approaches

Target Audience
Practicing neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists, fellows, and residents in training.
