Peripheral Nerve Surgery Integrated in Neurosurgical Practice

10 -11 December 2019

Venue: DHA Training & Simulation Center Dubai

About the Course

Peripheral nerve surgery usually receives little attention by neurosurgeons, both during their training and practice. Although it is certainly true that it is frequently considered mostly related to orthopedic or plastic surgery, the essentiality of its role should not be downplayed and it should be integral part of neurosurgical practice.

In reality, a rather high percentage of patients present misdiagnosis and consequent failure of treatment due to frequent neglect of peripheral nerve disorders.

The course is designed to highlight a practical approach that aims to provide a basic knowledge of this surgical subspecialty; hence it focuses on differential diagnosis and indications for treatment for the most common issues related to the peripheral nerve system as encountered in neurosurgical practice.

The course is reserved to 40 participants and includes lectures, round tables and case-related group discussions; in this regards, participants are welcome to share cases from their practice.
