AO North America

AOSpine Course-Principles and Treatment of Spinal Disorders for Residents

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

AOSpine North America Principles courses are intended to address the additional training needs and practice gaps of the orthopaedic and neurological spine residents. This course is designed to offer residents the opportunity to learn the AO principles of anatomic reduction of fracture fragments; stable fixation to ensure proper healing while allowing the surrounding tissue to strengthen; atraumatic surgical technique to preserve the blood supply to the bone fragments and soft tissue; and early, pain-free mobilization so the patient can be returned to function as soon as possible as they apply to spinal surgery. The course will also provide basic exposure to spinal disorders from expert teaching faculty from both orthopaedic and neurological spine surgery.

The modular course format will focus on the spine patient in a conceptual, case study and practical exercise format. Participants in small groups will rotate through each module over the 2 day period. All participants are encouraged to bring HIPAA compliant cases for discussion to maximize their experience at the course.
