This 4-day course teaches the surgical techniques and anatomy for endoscopic endonasal surgery of the pituitary fossa and cranial base. Experts on the subject will present the anatomy indications and technical aspects of these approaches along with prevention of complications.
The course features an interactive live surgery demonstration, fresh anatomical specimen dissection, lectures and panel discussions, 3D anatomy lectures, and case presentations. Participants will have an opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills regarding endoscopic surgery of the cranial base and pituitary fossa.
This course is sponsored by the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine’s Center for Continuing Education in the Health Sciences, the Department of Neurological Surgery, the Department of Otolaryngology, and the UPMC Center for Cranial Base Surgery.
