Current Techniques in the Treatment of Cranial and Spinal Disorders

10th Annual Symposium: Saturday, October 26, 2013

The Omni Interlocken Resort, Broomfield, Colorado

Our 10th 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 acute stroke management, case studies in neuroethics, stem cells in neurosurgery, management of sports concussions, spinal injection complications, intracerebral and spinal hematomas, and coil versus clip in brain aneurysms.

Our panel of speakers included distinguished visiting professor Nicholas Boulis, MD. Dr. Boulis is a physician scientist whose research interests include biological neurorestoration and neuromodulation through the use of cell, protein and gene delivery to the nervous system. As an Associate Professor at the Emory School of Medicine and a practicing neurosurgical doctor at Emory Healthcare, Dr. Boulis leads a Gene and Cell Therapy Translational Laboratory which pursues advanced biological treatments for neurological disorders, including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) and Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA).

The 2013 event had more than 230 attendees representing hospitals and medical practices spanning from Fort Collins to Pueblo.
