Activity Details
Activity Name: UCLA Neurosurgery Update 2019
Needs Assessment:

The Department of Neurosurgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA presents its second annual comprehensive update on emerging diagnostic and treatment modalities for diseases of the brain and spine drawing upon the department’s world class expertise in each subspecialty. This course will feature sessions on intrinsic and extrinsic brain tumors, cerebrovascular disease, functional and stereotactic neurosurgery, spinal disease, as well as traumatic brain injury and neurocritical care. This year, the course will also feature a mini-symposium on recent advances in image-guided ablative surgery for tumors, epilepsy and movement disorders. Renowned faculty experts from UCLA neurosurgery will present novel treatment and management strategies to help healthcare professionals deliver the most advanced care to their patients. This two-day program will be delivered in topic-specific sessions, each followed by discussion and a question and answer break, to encourage active participation by the audience and discussion of challenging cases.

At the conclusion of this course, participants should be better able to:

  • Recommend the most up-to-date diagnostic, surgical, and minimally invasive advances in the evaluation and treatment of patients with brain and spinal pathology
  • Identify and implement optimal patient-specific therapies for patients with brain tumors
  • Select optimal treatment strategies for and recognize limitations of functional neurosurgical indications
  • Compare the relative utility of distinct approaches for managing spinal disorders
  • Review multidisciplinary approaches to intracranial disease in the pediatric population
