Surgical Approaches to the Skull Base: A Hands-On Cadaver Workshop

You are here

This unique hands-on course is conducted four times 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. (Please note that this is NOT a CME event.)
