JPNI Annual Symposium: Current Techniques in the Treatment of Cranial and Spinal Disorders
Saturday, October 21, 2017
7:00am – 5:00pm
Omni Interlocken Hotel
Broomfield, CO

The 14th Annual Symposium is jointly provided by the Justin Parker Neurological Institute and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and facilitated by Boulder Neurosurgical & Spine Associates. The symposium targets health care providers involved in the care of cranial and spinal disorders.  This live education activity offers a series of innovative presentations featuring the latest advancements and treatment considerations in cranial, orthopedic, and neurosurgical spine technology. The topics include alternative uses for deep brain stimulation; alternative treatment options for vestibular schwannoma, opioid use as a predictor of outcome for spinal surgery patients; the argument for an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) or a total disc replacement surgery.  Dr. Huntington Potter will be presenting information on his latest Alzheimer’s study and the safety and efficacy of granulocyte-macrophage-colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF)/ Leukine.

Keynote Speaker:  Mark Bain, MD
“Advanced Endovascular Techniques for the Treatment of Complex Brain Aneurysms”

Mark Bain, MD is a neurosurgeon at the Cleveland Clinic’s Cerebrovascular Center in Cleveland, OH.  He received his medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine and completed his fellowship in endovascular, cerebrovascular and skull base surgery at the Cleveland Clinic.  It was during his fellowship that Dr. Bain gained significant interest in developing assessments and perfecting outcomes for safe and efficacious hemorrhagic interventions. Dr. Bain’s involvement in the outpatient clinics, inpatient service, acute stroke and hemorrhagic response teams, along with more than 3,000 stroke admissions, provides an exceptional opportunity to scientifically analyze data, enabling the advancement of research in the field and improving stroke care and outcomes for the patients.
