Neurosurgery Board Reviews

  • Oakstone CME Neurosurgery — A Comprehensive Review

    Neurosurgery CME from the Experts

    This online CME program is broad and deep in its coverage of neurosurgery subspecialty areas. Led by Ian F. Dunn, MD, FAANS, authoritative speakers with extensive subspecialty training present the latest technical innovations and surgical techniques, along with pearls and pitfalls from their own clinical practices. Neurosurgery – A Comprehensive Review delivers key take-home points with each lecture, including:

    • Vascular Malformations. Intracranial vascular malformations are best treated with multimodality therapy, including microsurgery, embolization, and stereotactic radiosurgery in different combinations.
    • Management of Severe Traumatic Brain Injury. Modern management of traumatic brain injury involves improving outcomes via minimizing secondary injury.
    • Cervical Spine Trauma. The need for surgical stabilization after cervical trauma depends on the extent of bony, discoligamentous, and neurologic compromise.
    • Brachial Plexus Lesions. Nerve transfers have a role in reconstructing function in brachial plexus injuries.
    • Meningiomas. Threat of recurrence is directly related to the extent of surgical removal.
    • And more…
