Bringing together skill sets from neurosurgery and otolaryngology, this comprehensive three-day course offers a unique opportunity to collaborate and learn complex surgical techniques from some of the top experts in the field of skull base pathologies, and to take advantage of the leading-edge technologies and cadaver dissection available in our lab.

The Skull Base Lab team instructs via didactic presentation, 3D and virtual reality (VR) anatomy demonstration, and guided cadaveric dissection. Participating surgeons get hands-on dissection experience using specimens to practice several complex approaches in both open and endoscopic cranial base surgery.
