Objectives:

The purpose of this course is to increase competence and improve clinical practice in the management of patients with spinal pathologies. Attendees will be better equipped to:

  • Evaluate and treat spinal pain in a cost effective and reliable manner based on recently published guidelines;
  • Identify appropriate indications for surgery of the painful, degenerated spine and identify the appropriate surgical approach in the painful, degenerative spinal conditions based on recently published guidelines;
  • Evaluate and treat lumbar degenerative disease and deformity in a cost effective manner and avoid perioperative complications by identifying risk factors that may predispose to morbidity;
  • Determine pain management strategies for patients with spine-related pain;
  • Increase utilization and competence with NASS spinal stenosis guidelines;
  • Provide physical exams that include a process to identify lower extremity pain that dissipates while sitting and exacerbates with standing or walking;
  • Identify spinal instability related to spinal tumors and formulate surgical treatment plans to deal with neurological deficits and pain in spine oncology patients based on recently published guidelines.
