Spinal Deformity 2019: Reality versus the Ivory Tower

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

While complications may be the norm for caring for spine deformity patients, this forum will allow for lively interaction and debate between clinicians to challenge the status quo. The course will feature nationally renowned leaders in the care of spine deformities from multidisciplinary perspectives. It will introduce methods for differentiating between various syndromes associated with spine deformities, while discussing current evidence for surgical and non-surgical management. Learners will be presented with evidence for pre-, peri- and post- operative protocols to enhance patient management. Clinicians in a variety of settings will learn to institute a number of evidence–based, multidisciplinary algorithms for deformity care.
