The 9th Annual Symposium

The Omni Interlocken Resort, Broomfield, Colorado, October 20, 2012

Our 9th Annual Symposium on Current Techniques in the Treatment of Cranial and Spinal Disorders offered a series of innovative presentations regarding the latest advancements and treatment considerations in cranial, orthopedic and neurosurgical spine technology. Topics included stem cell research for brain and spinal cord injuries, advances in rehabilitation and exercise-based therapies, surgical options for epilepsy, stereotactic radiosurgery and cold radiofrequency for joint lumbar and thoracic pain.

Our panel of speakers included distinguished visiting professor Stephen Davies, PhD. As a postdoctoral fellow Dr. Davies initiated a series of adult neuron to adult central nervous system (CNS) transplantation experiments that fundamentally changed the scientific community’s understanding of the role of scar tissue in preventing axon regeneration in the traumatically injured adult brain and spinal cord.

More than 200 medical practitioners attend this educational activity, representing hospitals and medical practices spanning the Front Range. This live activity is planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint sponsorship of the AANS and JPNI.
