AOSpine Seminar - Managing Complications: Clinically, Ethically and Legally

October 24, 2020 to October 25, 2020
Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront, Jacksonville, Florida 32202, United States
Adverse events in spinal surgery happen. Some of these are avoidable and can be attributed to the surgical team and others are merely risks from the procedure. Whether it is pre-operative, intra-operative or post-operative, surgeons need to know how to deal with these complications not only from a clinical perspective but also from a legal, ethical and psychological perspective as well.

During this course, a panel of experts will cover the spectrum of these perspectives to include:

-Clinical approaches to complications
-Avoiding compensable events
-Risk management
-How to prepare for the worst
-Talking with the family

This course has limited enrollment and is open to practicing orthopedic spine surgeons and neurosurgeons. The goal of this course is to discuss in a closed confidential environment the seriously adverse complication cases everyone hears about and never wants to live through.

AOSpine Course - Principles and Treatment of Spinal Disorders for Residents

November 13, 2020 to November 14, 2020
Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada 89169, United States
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.
