Advanced Lateral Approaches to the Spine

As the lateral approach becomes a preferred technique for multiple spinal conditions, this course was created with a specialized focus on the application and hands-on implementation of the lateral approach.

Join leading experts as they perform two advanced lateral surgical technique procedures, live from the Seattle Science Foundation.

Basics of the Sagittal Balance of the Spine

The concepts and principles of sagittal balance of the spine have proven to be of utmost clinical importance regarding surgical outcomes. However, the initial appreciation and study of these concepts can be daunting.

This course focuses on providing the basic principles of sagittal balance of the spine, allowing its application in daily clinical practice and research.
