Neuroendoscopy Techniques and Pearls: An Interactive Web Symposium
Join us for a FREE Neuroendoscopy Techniques: An Interactive Web Symposium on June 7, 2014 at 11am (EST) presented by GlobalCastMD. This innovative virtual symposium will be broadcast live from Akron Children’s Hospital. Distinguished expert faculty will address fundamentals, technical tips and tricks for improving basic surgical endoscopic techniques.  This online, virtual symposium will include 3 mini symposia each lasting 1.5-2 hours focusing on focus Endoscopic Endonasal, Ventricular, and Intracranial Surgery to refine surgical techniques.
 
This live broadcast will allow interactive exchanges with expert panelists as they address fundamentals of basic techniques and strategies in neurosurgical endoscopy. The presentations will be in the form of engaging panel discussions, case presentations and lively debate. Topics will include endoscopic skull base surgery, craniopharyngioma, third ventriculostomy, colloid cyst, keyhole craniotomy, trigeminal neurologia and exploration of the pineal region.
 
Audience participation will be enhanced with live chat, polling the audience along with phone in questions and answer sessions throughout the show.
