  • 28th Ulm Spine Week

    Sonntag, 1. März 2020, 08:00 -

    A dramatic increase of technology in spinal surgery has been witnessed over the past two decades. New concepts such as non-fusion technology and minimal-invasive procedures have been introduced and advocated to improve clinical outcome. This, in combination with the rising number of spine surgery departments, has led to an enormous increase in the number of surgical procedures.

    Generally, the application of new surgical techniques demands more skills than the use of established techniques does. However, the readiness to adopt such new technology grows much faster than the skills and the experience
    required. Therefore, theoretical and practical training are of prime importance.

    The cooperation of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and the Department of Anatomy and Cellular Neurobiology of the University of Ulm with the Department of Neurosurgery of the Military Hospital Ulm enables a unique integration of theoretical and practical training in the setting of an instructional course. A panel of renowned experts in the field of spine surgery will present both classical issues and promising trends in their lectures. Hands-on workshops with sawbones and human cadavers will allow for an integration of the acquired knowledge into practical skills.

    Three days of the course cover a variety of anterior and posterior techniques required for the treatment of degenerative, rheumatic, traumatic, tumorous, and deformity-related disorders of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine. An entire day is dedicated exclusively to novel therapeutical approaches to lumbar disc pathology, to minimally invasive spinal procedures and to lumbar non-fusion technologies, since we believe that these issues deserve specific clarification. The last day of the course addresses issues such as the role of bone substitutes in spinal fusion, failed spine surgery and complications, the management of the osteoporotic spine, and specific requirements in treating patients with spinal cord injury.

    In order to share your experience, we will have every day best/worst cases presentations. Therefore, all participants are asked to bring hard copies or electronically stored files of their best and/or worst cases. We are looking
    forward to interesting cases and lively discussions.
