Bringing together skill sets from neurosurgery and otolaryngology, this comprehensive two-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.

On completion of the course, participants will be able to:

Review the surgical approaches (open and endoscopic) for complex skull base pathologies

Recognize the advantages of a team-based approach for managing pre-op, peri-op and post-op skull base pathologies

Demonstrate proficiency in endoscopic instrument handling and standard open skull base approaches

Master minimally invasive endoscopic endonasal approaches to the sellar and perisellar regions and advanced orbital-zygomatic craniotomy

Identify complex skull base pathologies


  • Comprehensive two-day dissection experience
  • Open and endoscopicsurgicalapproaches
  • 3D and VR anatomy guided demonstrations
