Spinal Deformity Symposium Sponsored by Hospital for Special Surgery Office of Continuing Medical Education
Location Hospital for Special Surgery Richard L. Menschel Education Center, 2nd Floor 535 East 70th Street, New York City STATEMENT OF NEED Spine surgery in general, and spine deformity surgery in particular, is a subspecialty within orthopaedic surgery that has a wide spectrum for clinical practice. To make the situation somewhat more complicated, ongoing technological innovation and novel device creation adds even more options for clinical care delivery. Tremendous research effort has been applied to deliver evidence-based recommendations for patient management, most notably through the well-designed Spine Patient Outcomes Research Trial (SPORT) series of publications, but also through smaller clinical research studies. Spine deformity diagnoses (spondylolisthesis, scoliosis and kyphosis among others) are in the process of having large multicenter study groups provide similar data and recommendations for management, but the majority of care is still delivered at the discretion of the surgeon with practice guided by their personal experience and familiarity with existing literature. TARGET AUDIENCE This activity is targeted to orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons. Primary care physicians, pediatricians, neurologists, physiatrists, physician assistants, physical therapists, nurses, nurse practitioners, residents, fellows and medical students may also find it valuable. OBJECTIVES HSS continuing medical education activities are intended to improve the quality of patient care and safety. At the completion of the course, the participant should be able to: ■ Express an in-depth knowledge including the pros and cons of spinal deformity surgery for severe pondylolisthesis or minimally invasive techniques for spinal deformity management. ■ Identify when to appropriately refer patients to specialists, such as spinal deformity surgeries. ■ Perform the latest techniques with their spinal deformity patients such as vertebral column osteotomies or other complex realignment strategies for sagittal plane realignment.
