More than 200 attended the 14th Annual symposium on Current Techniques in the Treatment of Cranial and Spinal Disorders on October 21, 2017.  Symposium attendees heard from ten speakers and faculty discuss a wide variety of topics including surgery techniques for vestibular schwannoma, opioid use as a predictor for spine surgery, the latest research in finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease and the latest treatment of headaches.  The afternoon featured an argument for cervical discectomy and fusion or total disc replacement.

The highlight of the day came from our keynote speaker, Jared Knopman, MD a board-certified neurosurgeon and assistant professor at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College.  He talked about the innovations in cerebrovascular and endovascular surgery and shared findings from clinical trials that have helped advance the field of endovascular neurosurgery.

Thank you to our sponsors and exhibitors that made the event possible, with more than 32 exhibitors to visit throughout the day. The annual symposium is jointly provided by JPNI and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and facilitated by Boulder Neurosurgical & Spine Associates. The symposium offers a one-day extensive seminar that brings together a diverse panel of experts to disseminate advancements, scientific discoveries and innovative medical technologies to the medical community and into clinical practice.
