Spine surgeons (orthopaedic and neurological surgeons), fellows, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, engineers and company personnel all represent the target audience of the 5th Dubai Spine Masters Congress to be held at the Intercontinental Festival City on May 6th-8th 2012.
Dubai Spine Masters (DSM) is an international platform that gathers an interdisciplinary group of global opinion leaders for an update on cutting-edge management strategies for all segments of the spine; from the occipitocervical junction to the sacrum. Utilizing an interactive platform of instructional expert lectures, panel discussions, case presentations and hands-on demonstrations, this year’s emphasis is complex spinal reconstruction and deformity management strategies (cervical, thoracic and lumbar) including treatment of degenerative spine diseases, scoliosis, trauma, tumors. The role of motion sparing devices, MISS and a variety of treatment strategies for the elderly and pediatric populations will also be covered.
Hands-on Cadaveric Workshops
Elective post congress courses entail all-day intensive hands-on training on fresh frozen cadaveric specimen (15 stations; multi-vendor sponsored). The courses are designed to familiarize participants with cutting edge surgical management strategies utilized during complex spine reconstruction and deformity intervention, as well as complication avoidance. Capacity is limited and spots during either day are offered on a first-come first-served basis. Schedules for the cadaveric workshops are apparently available for download, although we could not locate them at the time of going to press.
This activity has been 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 Medical Education Resources (MER). MER is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
MER designates this live activity for a maximum of 17 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
